Our latest Workshop: ''Contractualism, Risk, and Population Ethics''

October 6-7, 2017

This workshop will address issues concerning population ethics and the bearing of risk on the moral permissibility of individual actions; a particular focus will be the resources and limits of contractualism as a framework for thinking about these questions. Discussions will take as their starting point some recent work on these topics by Johann Frick of Princeton University, who will be present at the workshop in Berlin. 

 

Other invited participants include Christoph Fehige (Saarbrücken), Rainer Forst (Frankfurt), Tim Henning (Stuttgart), Ulrike Heuer (Leeds), Erasmus Mayr (Erlangen), Kirsten Meyer (HU Berlin), Lukas Meyer (Graz), Véronique Munoz-Dardé (UCL/Berkeley), Juri Viehoff (Zürich), Tatjana Višak (Mannheim).
