This is a reminder for:

Title: Peter Anstey (University of Sydney)
Moral evaluation and the trumping fallacy.


This paper presents a theory of first order moral evaluation. The theory,  
it is claimed, is intuitively plausible, empirically tractable and  
revisable. As such it raises a problem for many normative ethical theories.  
The problem arises from the fact that proponents of normative theories,  
such as act utilitarianism, tend to justify their normative principles on  
the basis of cases of moral evaluation. The theory of moral evaluation  
presented here implies that this cannot be done. The implications of the  
theory for virtue ethics and moral particularism are also explored.

When: Wed 28 Aug 2013 15:30 – 17:30 Eastern Time - Melbourne, Sydney
Where: S401, Level 4, via Lobby B (or Southern Vestibule), Quadrangle  
Building, University Place, The University of Sydney.
