The Philosophy Department's Faculty Research Group in Ethical Theory began by discussing John Rawls's A Theory of Justice shortly after that work was published in 1971. It meets three to five times a semester to discuss recent work, by members and others in the field. Most years, a visiting scholar is invited to discuss his or her work with the group, and also to give a public lecture. In recent years, we have hosted Frances Kamm, Shelly Kagan, and Seana Schiffrin.

The aim of the group is to provide a forum in which faculty working in ethics can help each other with ongoing research and inquiry.

We are kicking off 2014-15 with our first meeting of the year on Tuesday, September 2 at 2:00pm.
