Each month, the Zurich Speaker Series on Moral Responsibility hosts a guest speaker at the University of Zurich’s Center for Ethics. Topics covered include the relationship between moral responsibility and free will, moral luck, reactive atittudes like praise and blame, different “faces” of moral responsibility like attributability and accountability, moral responsibility for attitudes, moods, and beliefs, and more.

Papers are pre-circulated, and attendees of the speaker series are expected to read papers in advance. To get added to the mailing list, contact zmr@philos.uzh.ch.

Sessions take place from 4.15-6pm, and are held in seminar room ZOA E 14 of the Center for Ethics, Zollikerstrasse 117, 8008 Zurich.

Speakers will also offer professional development sessions in conjunction with their visits on topics like publishing, the academic job market, conferences, and women in philosophy. For more information about these sessions, please email us.
