All welcome, no registration required.

Michael S. Moore is currently the Charles R. Walgreen, Jr. Chair in Law and Co-Director, Program in Law and Philosophy at the University of Illinois. His areas of scholarly interest include law, jurisprudence, political theory, legal philosophy, political science, economics, philosophy, psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience.

His publications include Causation and Responsibility: An Essay in Law, Morals, and Metaphysics (Oxford University Press, 2009), Act and Crime: The Philosophy of Action and its Implications for Criminal Law (Oxford University Press, 1993), Placing Blame: A General Theory of the Criminal Law (Oxford University Press, 1997), and Mechanical Choices: The Responsibility of the Human Machine (Oxford University Press, forthcoming), to name a few. A festschrift recently published in his honour, Legal, Moral, and Metaphysical Truth: The Philosophy of Michael S. Moore (K. Ferzan and S Morse, eds; Oxford University Press, 2016) explores Moore's view of the purpose and justification of criminal law, the relationship between that culpability and proximate causation, as well as the intersection of psychiatry, cognitive neuroscience, and criminal law.

Hope to see you there!
