Event description

Description

The YTL Centre for Politics, Philosophy and Law is delighted to launch Professor Jay Wallace's important new book, "The Moral Nexus" (Princeton University Press, 2019).

The Moral Nexus develops and defends a new interpretation of morality—namely, as a set of requirements that connect agents normatively to other persons in a nexus of moral relations. According to this relational interpretation, moral demands are directed to other individuals, who have claims that the agent comply with these demands. Interpersonal morality, so conceived, is the domain of what we owe to each other, insofar as we are each persons with equal moral standing.

The book offers an interpretative argument for the relational approach. Specifically, it highlights neglected advantages of this way of understanding the moral domain; explores important theoretical and practical presuppositions of relational moral duties; and considers the normative implications of understanding morality in relational terms.

Speakers:

Prof Jay Wallace (UC Berkeley)

Prof John Skorupski (St Andrews)

Prof John Tasioulas (KCL)
