Title: Stephanie Collins
Blameworthiness and Obligation in Non-Agent GroupsWhat's the moral status
of groups that are not agents -- groups like 'carbon emitters', 'the
international community', or 'upholders of patriarchy'? This paper
will argue that groups that are not agents cannot
have obligations, but that they can be blameworthy. This unlikely
pair of conclusions arises because of the different functions that
obligations and blameworthiness play in our moral and political practices.
Obligations function as inputs into the practical deliberation of the
entity that bears the obligation. Groups that are not agents cannot reason,
so they cannot have obligations. By contrast, blameworthiness functions as
a reflection of the esteem or disesteem with which others (should) hold the
blameworthy entity. Non-group agent groups are -- sometimes -- appropriate
objects of esteem or disesteem. I give conditions under which
non-agent groups are irreducibly blameworthy.
When: Wed 2 May 2018 13:00 – 14:30 Eastern Time - Melbourne, Sydney
