9/11/2014 - CLA Hale Ethics Series
September 11, 2014
Thursday, September 11th3:30-5 pm, Carlson Auditorium (76-1125)Wade Robison (Philosophy, RIT)"Ethics Across the Curriculum"The aim of ethics across the curriulum is to integrate ethics into existing curricula. Ethical considerations are internal to disciplines, and the aim of ethics across the curriculum is to make explicit the implicit ethical considerations that mark all disciplines. It is a presumption, and may be thought presumptuous, to claim that all disciplines at least implicitly embody ethical considerations, but it is a presumption that finds fruit when we examine engineering, for example, or history, or political science, or photography. Professor Robison will provide a general overview of the sorts of ethical considerations we find in all disciplines along with some examples he thinks telling for how ethical considerations enter into some disciplines that may be thought bare of such considerations. (Thursday, September 11th, 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM -Carlson Auditorium)
9/18/2014 - CLA Hale Ethics Series
September 18, 2014
Thursday, September 18thCarlson Auditorium (76-1125)3:30-5 pm, Lucy Ward (Philosophy, University of Melbourne)From Marx to Kant: Alienation and the 'Problem' of JusticeThis paper analyses Kant's political and anthropological writings in relation to Marx's early discussions of alienation. It is argued that Kant's discussion of what he terms “passions” and “mania” provides a crucial framework shedding light on the normative and moral dimensions to Marx's thesis concerning alienation. Kant describes Süchte or “hungers” (i.e. the desire for possession, for power, and for fame) as quantitative needs, ones that vacate and empty, rather than qualitatively fill, the human personality oriented towards them. The purpose of this analysis is to make a case for the continuing significance of the ‘problem' of alienation–both as it is developed in the works of contemporary thinkers Jürgen Habermas and Agnes Heller–and as applied to theories of radical democracy and justice more broadly.(Thursday, September 18th, 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM -Carlson Auditorium)
