Zoom link: https://uni-sydney.zoom.us/j/82621166975*In-person in the  
seminar room and simulcast via Zoom*Title: Ethics must be seen to be  
done: Signalling and moral ambiguityEthicists have already begun to grapple  
with the question of how our own ignorance and uncertainty affects what we  
ought to do. I reveal the extent to which an agent must also be responsive  
to the uncertainty and mistaken beliefs of others. Drawing on  
Signalling Theory from economics and biology and extending it to the moral  
domain, I show that an information asymmetry can exist between an agent and  
an observer resulting in the agent’s actions being ‘morally ambiguous’:  
even the actions of a conscientious moral agent can look impermissible from  
an observer’s point of view. This paper provides a systematic exploration  
of some of the ethical dimensions of such information asymmetries: how  
moral ambiguity is morally consequential and thus, in turn, how normative  
signalling is a matter of moral responsibility. Highlighting the  
informational value of ethical action, I demonstrate that, like justice,  
ethics must be seen to be done.
