The Centre for Ethics presents

Animal Selves and the Good

Christine M Korsgaard (PhD Harvard, 1981) works on moral philosophy and its history, practical reason, agency, personal identity, and human/animal relations. She is the author of four books. The Sources of Normativity (Cambridge, 1996), an expanded version of her 1992 Tanner Lectures, examines the history of ideas about the foundations of obligation in modern moral philosophy and presents an account of her own. Creating the Kingdom of Ends (Cambridge, 1996) is a collection of her essays on Kant's Ethics and Kantian Ethics. The Constitution of Agency (Oxford, 2008) is a collection of her recent papers on practical reason and moral psychology. And Self-Constitution: Agency, Identity, and Integrity (Oxford, 2009) is a book about the foundation of morality in the nature of agency.

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
