HPPE: Philosophy Matters – “How to get away with bad behavior by using an excuse.”
November 7 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Join Samuel Zinaich, associate professor of Philosophy, as he discusses the views of the late Banks McDowell (1930-2001) who wrote extensively about the role of excuses in different ethical contexts.
What does McDowell mean by the term ‘excuse’? Zinaich reveals making excuses and judging bad behavior is a more difficult and elusive project than we might know!
