Contractualism and the Non-Identity Problem: A Reassessment

Rahul Kumar, Department of Philosophy, Queen's University. Executive Editor, Canadian Journal of Philosophy. Rahul Kumar's principle research interest is in contemporary moral theory, and in particular, the development, and exploration of the implications, of a plausible non-consequentialist approach to understanding moral reasoning for both issues between rival moral theories, and for substantive issues in normative moral and political philosophy. He is the author of numerous publications in this area, including Consensualism in Principle (Routledge:2001), and various papers in Philosophy and Public Affairs, Ethics, Ratio, and Utilitas. He also maintains an active interest in certain other areas of moral and political philosophy, in which he frequently teaches courses, including moral psychology, the theory of moral responsibility, and in the history of 20th century moral philosophy. He comes to Queen's after having held appointments as a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard University, a member of the full-time faculty at the University of Pennsylvania, and as visiting faculty at Rhodes University, South Africa.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Centre for Ethics at 416 946-6288.
