Title: Russ Shafer-Landau
Moral Conceptual Truths

Consider this proposition: wanton torture is morally wrong. Unless you deny  
that any moral propositions are true, you'll likely sign on to this one.  
But you probably don't regard it as a conceptual truth. I do. In this talk,  
based on work I'm doing with John Bengson and Terence Cuneo, I'll defend  
the claim that there are a range of substantive moral propositions that are  
conceptual truths. The key element of the case for this view is notion of  
essence, and an essence-based conception of conceptual truth. Much of the  
talk will be given over to elucidating the relevant essentialist notions  
and then, with their aid, defending the view that some substantive moral  
propositions are conceptual truths.
When: Wed 6 Jun 2018 13:00 – 14:30 Eastern Time - Melbourne, Sydney
