Arizona Workshop
in Normative Ethics

January 16-18, 2025

Tucson, Arizona

About The Workshop

This annual Arizona Workshop features new work in normative ethical theory broadly construed, to include not only issues about the right and the good, but meta-theoretical questions about the project of developing and defending normative ethical theories.

Normative ethical theory addresses general questions about the right and the good and attempts to answer such questions as: What sorts of actions are right or wrong and why? What sort of person ought one to become and why? Normative ethical theories, including, for instance, versions of consequentialism, deontology, contractualism, natural law theory, and virtue ethics address such questions. 

The workshop receives generous financial support from the University of Arizona Center for the Philosophy of Freedom.
