Win £1500: The Philosophical Quarterly invites submissions for its 2017 international prize essay competition.
What is effective altruism?
What are its core philosophical commitments, and are they tenable? For example: is effective altruism compatible with agent-centred partiality for particular charitable causes? Should non-consequentialists understand benevolence in effective altruist terms?
The Philosophical Quarterly welcomes essays of 8,000 words or fewer addressing these questions.
