Final Ethics retrospective: discussion with Christine Korsgaard and Tamar Schapiro

I’m excited to begin our final event in celebration of the 125th anniversary year of Ethics: a discussion with Christine Korsgaard and Tamar Schapiro.  Many thanks to both Korsgaard and Schapiro for this great opportunity to talk to them.

To kick off the discussion, Schapiro and I ask some initial questions from Korsgaard in the comments section, and Korsgaard responds. Our questions are on themes from Korsgaard’s “Aristotle and Kant on the Source of Value” and Schapiro’s retrospective piece on it (both available open access through the links); as well as on connections to Korsgaard’s more recent work.

The comments are open for more questions from you all. Please join us!
