CLA Hale Lecture Series
October 28, 2016
The CLA Hale Lecture Series presents Simon Blackburn University of North Carolina Department of Philosophy   Friday, October 28th 3:00 – 5:00 pm Liberal Arts Hall Room A205 (Basement Level) “Feelings & Judgments” A number of authors (Parfit, Nussbaum) have downplayed the place of feelings in moral philosophy, or indeed extinguished their importance altogether. By assimilating feelings to sensations they exclude them from the field of reasons. However, not only the Scottish sentimentalists but writers such as Brentano and Ryle have taken a very different tack. In this lecture I argue that Brentano and Ryle are right and diagnose the mistakes that Parfit and Nussbaum make. Feelings both give us reasons for actions, and themselves respond to reasons. FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC   Interpreters provided upon request & subject to availability. Please make your request TODAY by going to Access.rit.edu. (Friday, October 28th, 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM - Other Liberal Arts Hall, Room A205 (Basement Level))
