The Centre for Ethics presents Ethics at Noon

Egalitarianism for Girls

Kerah Gordon-Solmon is professor in the Department of Philosophy, Queen's University. Her research lies in normative and practical ethics, and political philosophy. She has published articles on various topics within these sub-disciplines, including: the ethics of self- and other-defense, the ethics of human genetic enhancement, the value of choice, moral desert, and luck-egalitarian justice.

The paper argues, via responding to the "harshness" objection to luck egalitarianism, that -- contrary to widespread assumptions -- the values of mutuality and fellow feeling, most often associated with the "ethic of care," are internal to luck egalitarian justice.

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.
