Philosophy Speakers: Twin Dilemmas

Date & Time:
October 12, 2018 | 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Location:
SS 1253
Speaker:
Ishtiyaque Haji, University of Calgary

About the Talk:

There is a prima facie case for responsibility skepticism—determinism and indeterminism seemingly threaten moral responsibility. In this paper, I argue that there is such a case for prohibition skepticism as well—determinism and indeterminism imperil moral impermissibility. Furthermore, I show that prohibition skepticism, in turn, fuels obligation skepticism too.
