      Les membres du CRÉ sont heureux d’accueillir Christopher Howard (University of Arizona) qui offrira une présentation intitulée « Weighing Epistemic and Practical Reasons for Belief ».

      Résumé

      The paper is about how epistemic and practical reasons for belief can be compared against each other when they conflict. I provide a model for determining what one ought to believe all-things-considered when there are conflicting epistemic and practical reasons. I argue that my model is superior to a recent model for comparing epistemic and practical reasons proposed by Andrew Reisner. My model has all the advantages of Reisner’s model but none of the costs. The distinction between epistemic and practical reasons for belief is plausibly a special case of the more general distinction between reasons for attitudes of the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ kinds. I conclude by arguing that my model for comparing epistemic and practical reasons can be generalized to provide a plausible model for determining what attitude one ought to hold, all-things-considered, when there are conflicting right- and wrong-kind reasons.

    1. Matteo Bonotti (Cardiff University) @ Salle 309
      12:15 – 13:45

      Le CRÉ est heureux d’accueillir Matteo Bonotti (Cardiff University), qui nous offrira une présentation intitulée « Healthy Eating Policy and Neutrality of Justifications in Diverse Societies », à partir d’un texte co-écrit avec Anne Barnhill.

      Résumé

      In this paper we critically assess whether one can be consistently committed to the ideal of state neutrality and to the endorsement of healthy eating policies. First, we discuss the general features of the liberal idea of state neutrality, focusing especially on the distinction between neutrality of consequences and neutrality of justifications, and endorsing the latter. Second, we illustrate multiple ways in which contemporary societies are characterized by a reasonable pluralism concerning conceptions of health and values attached to eating practices. We then consider the implications of the ‘shareability’ and the ‘accessibility’ ideals of public justification for the justifiability of public health interventions in the area of food policy. We conclude by arguing that healthy eating policies are only permissible if one endorses a combination of accessibility and weak shareability conceptions of neutrality of justifications, and that embracing a full shareability conception would justify instead support for a libertarian minimal state that refrains from implementing public health interventions.

    1. Convergence and Divergence between Animal and Environmental Ethics @ Arts W-120, McGill
      mai 17 – mai 19 journée entière

      Convergence and Divergence between Animal and Environmental Ethics | Convergence et divergence entre éthique animale et environnementale

      International Conference in Environnemental and Animal Ethics | Conférence internationale en éthique environnementale et animale

      CRÉ/GRÉEA

      Presentation

      « [T]wo streams of thought meet and are woven together… [in]to the beginnings of what, I believe, will be a lasting marriage.  (Though I have no illusions about the tranquility of that particular relationship.) »  (Singer 1992)

      Environmental ethics and animal ethics have much in common.  For one thing, each field has firmly established itself over just the past few decades.  On the theoretical side, this has meant the founding of journals like The Journal of Animal Ethics and Environmental Ethics; and on the practical side, the organization of activist groups running the gamut from polite to militant.  For the most part, both fields have also shared a commitment to non-anthropocentrism.  As the editor of a recent anthology put it, « Environmental ethics [which for him includes animal ethics] begins the moment we reject the view that only humans can be moral patients… » (Williston 2016).  In other words, humans are not the only entities in the universe worthy of direct moral concern.

      Animal and environmental ethics have tended to differ, however, on the question of just which other entities do count for their own sakes (rather than merely for the sake of humans).  Environmental ethicists have often included all individual animals, plants, and other organisms; along with « soils, waters » and the ecosystemic « community as such » (Leopold 1949).  In contrast, animal ethicists have tended to limit their direct moral concern to beings able to experience joy and suffering (Singer 1975).  Animal and environmental ethicists have also largely applied their respective theories to different domains, i.e., domesticated animals including pets, livestock, and laboratory subjects; vs. wild organisms, species, and ecosystems.

      However, humans are causing increasingly strong interactions between the wild and domestic realms.  For example, the overfishing of wild populations has induced a massive rise in fish farms.  Conversely, scientists now identify animal agriculture in general as the world’s leading cause of biodiversity loss (Machovina et al. 2015).  Furthermore, it has been nearly 25 years since two important book-length anthologies focused on the relationships between environmental and animal ethics (Hargrove 1992, Ryder 1992).  We therefore plan to host a conference on the topic in May 2017, and to publish a new edited volume based on it.

      The conference will bring together major established scholars, as well as up-and-coming researchers, in both fields.  Speakers will address convergence and divergence between animal and environmental ethics.  To wit, how much overlap is there between the policies that would be morally required for the sake of animals alone (including humans), vs. those required for the sake of organisms (including animals), entire species, and ecosystems?  We will focus on answers to this question in the following contexts:  (1) the wild vs. domesticated spheres, (2) predation by some non-human animals upon others, and (3) animal agriculture.

      Le CRÉ est heureux d’accueillir Chrisoula Andreou, qui nous offrira une présentation intitulée « Why Temptation? ».

      Abstract:

      Human beings are susceptible to temptation.  The aim of my talk is to suggest that there is good reason for this in the sense that susceptibility to temptation is not an anomaly, but is instead integral to a type of motivational system that is generally quite well suited to the task of balancing multiple ongoing goals.  The type of system that I will be examining has not been focused on in philosophical discussions of temptation or in related philosophical discussions of instrumental rationality; but, as I will explain, the features of interest make sense of many prominent philosophical views about temptation, and are extremely relevant with respect to illuminating our susceptibility to temptation.
