Conférence de Michael Zimmerman

Dans le cadre des ateliers du GRIN 2009 (Groupe de Recherche Interuniversitaire sur la Normativité)
Michael Zimmerman (University of North Carolina) présentera une conférence intitulée Partiality and Intrinsic Value le vendredi 2 octobre à 10h, au CREUM, local 309, 2910 Édouard-Montpetit, 3e étage.

Abstract: The fitting-attitudes analysis of value, which states that something’s being good consists in its being the fitting object of some pro-attitude, has recently been the focus of intense debate. Many objections have been leveled against this analysis. One objection to it concerns the “challenge from partiality,” according to which it can be fitting to display partiality toward objects of equal value. Several responses to the challenge have been proposed. This paper criticizes these and other responses and then offers a response that, it is claimed, solves the challenge.
