Title: Philosophy Seminar: Katie Steele (ANU)
The next philosophy department seminar will take place on 6 October at  
3:30pm on Zoom. The speaker will be Katie Steele (ANU). Please find more  
details about the talk and the Zoom link below.----------Moral Uncertainty,  
Noncognitivism, and the Multi-Objective StoryKatie Steele (ANU, with Pamela  
Robinson)Abstract. We sometimes seem to face fundamental moral uncertainty,  
i.e., uncertainty about what is morally good or right that cannot be  
reduced to ordinary descriptive uncertainty. This phenomenon raises a  
puzzle for noncognitivism, according to which moral thought involves  
desire-like attitudes as opposed to belief-like attitudes. Can a state of  
moral uncertainty really be a noncognitivist state? So far, noncognitivists  
have not been able to offer a completely satisfactory account of it. Here,  
we argue that noncognitivists should exploit the formal analogue between  
moral uncertainty and moral multi-objective decision problems. Our  
‘multi-objective story’ enables noncognitivists to save our moral  
uncertainty thought and talk by explaining how the underlying phenomenon  
could be noncognitivist. ----------Michael Nielsen is inviting you to
