Join us at King’s College London to discuss the release of Professor David Schmidtz’s new book, Living Together: Inventing Moral Science.

In Living Together, Prof Schmidtz presents a novel argument for the primacy of political over moral philosophy and seeks to change the way we think about the foundations of justice, drawing together the themes running through the career of an influential philosopher.

The workshop is taking place on 27 April, from 09.30 – 17.30, in Bush House NE 1.02 and will feature a panel of speakers alongside Prof Schmitdz.

Also confirmed as speaking are: Professor Cecile Fabre (Oxford), Professor Hallvard Lillehammer (Birkbeck), Professor Mark Pennington (KCL), Professor Robin Douglass (KCL), Dr Matt Sleat (Sheffield), Dr Edward Hall (Sheffield) and Dr Federica Carugati (KCL).
