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
Where: Sydney Uni, Muniment Room
