Hi all,

CAVE invites you to a seminar by Prof Christian B. Miller (Wake Forest University) on “Honesty: Some Preliminary Thoughts about a Stunningly Neglected Virtue.”

Abstract: Some moral virtues have received a lot of attention from philosophers, but honesty is not one of them. Indeed, as far as I can tell there has only been one paper on honesty in a philosophy journal in the past 50 years. So my goal here is to offer a preliminary account of honesty, focusing on the scope of the virtue, the kind of behavior to which it gives rise, and the motivational profile of an honest person. Central to my approach will be the idea that the honest person does not intentionally distort the facts as she takes them to be.

When: 04 June 2019, Tuesday, 3pm to 5pm
Where: 12Second Way (Room 315), Macquarie University (P16-17 on campus map https://www.mq.edu.au/__data/assets/image/0010/183556/Campus-Map.png)
Event is free.

Prof Christian B. Miller, A. C. Reid Professor of Philosophy at Wake Forest University (North Carolina, US), specialises in contemporary ethics, philosophy of religion, and the intersection of philosophy and psychology. He is the current director of The Beacon Project and the philosophy director of The Character Project. Latest publications include The Character Gap: How Good Are We? (OUP, 2017), Moral Character: An Empirical Theory (OUP, 2013), and Character and Moral Psychology (OUP, 2014).
