More Seriously Wrong

Everyday moral thought thinks some wrong acts are more seriously wrong that others, e.g., murder than breaking a promise. This paper asks how this is possible and suggests that what determines how seriously wrong an act is may differ for different types of wrong.

Thomas Hurka is University Professor and Chancellor Henry N.R. Jackman Distinguished Professor of Philosophical Studies at the University of Toronto. His main area of research and teaching is moral and political philosophy, especially normative ethical theory.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Centre for Ethics at (416) 978-6288.
