Social Metaphysics (Graduate Seminar)
Course description. In this seminar we will focus on the metaphysics of social construction, with a special focus on the mechanics of different social construction relations. We will also spend some time with the question of how to best evaluate views about how social construction works: is there a general list of desiderata available here, and if so, what is on that list and why?
Philosophy of Moral Responsibility
Course description. In this course we will take up philosophical questions about moral responsibility and blame: what is blame and how is it related to moral responsibility? What does it take to be blameworthy for something? We will also look at questions about blamerworthiness, or what it takes to be in a position to hold another person or institution accountable.
