KJuris: Matthew Silverstein (NYU Abu Dhabi)
27 January 2021, 16:00 to 18:00
Part of KJuris: King's Legal Philosophy Workshops 2020/21
KJuris Seminar with Matthew Silverstein (NYU Abu Dhabi)
Matthew Silverstein is interested in the foundations of ethics—that is, in the question of what, if anything, we can say on behalf of our most basic ethical commitments. His current work is located at the intersection of metaethics and the philosophy of action. Silverstein hopes that we can use accounts of practical reasoning drawn from the philosophy of action to ground an account of normative reasons for action. Central to the project is a reductive theory of reasons for action, according to which reasons for action are considerations that figure into sound practical reasoning.
