On 7 December we will be launching a new research centre at Reading – Reading Ethics and Political Philosophy (REAPP). REAPP will draw its members from our philosophy and politics departments. To launch the centre we will be hosting a one-day workshop with the theme ‘Institutions and Individuals’, with four papers at the intersection of moral and political philosophy. Our keynote speaker will be T.M. Scanlon (Harvard) who will be speaking on ‘Individual Morality and the Morality of Institutions’. We will also have papers from Japa Pallikkathayil (Pittsburgh), Kimberley Brownlee (Warwick), and David Owens (Reading).
Further details will follow (concerning booking etc), but for the time being we wanted to let people know about the event in the hope that they will note it in their diaries. Please do get in touch [p.r.tomlin [at] reading.ac.uk] if you have any questions, or if you’d just like to register interest in attending.
