School of History - events - Thu, 2016-08-25 16:21
Date and time:  Wed, 31/08/2016 - 16:15 - 17:30 Venue:  McDonald Room, Menzies Library, ANU

Faced with an unprecedented threat to national security during the Second World War, the Commonwealth government assumed extraordinary powers. These extended beyond the military effort to the measures required to equip and sustain it: there were unprecedented controls over capital and labour, investment and consumption. In return for the discipline and denial demanded of civilians, the government embarked on an ambitious scheme of economic and social reconstruction.

The Trial of Ta’isi O. F. Nelson: New Zealand’s Colonial Justice and Indigenous Resistance in 1930s Sāmoa

School of History - events - Thu, 2016-08-11 12:45
Date and time:  Wed, 17/08/2016 - 16:15 - 17:30 Venue:  McDonald Room, Menzies Library, ANU

This is a seminar about the extraordinary 1933–1934 trial of Ta’isi O. F. Nelson in Apia. The trial was the culmination of a harsh campaign of exile and public disgrace waged against the Sāmoan nationalist leader by conservative New Zealand governments since 1926. The government assumed Ta’isi’s trial would be quick and surgical.

Una Stojnic (ANU/NYU): Content and Modality

Philosophy - events - Wed, 2016-08-10 08:11
Philsoc seminar Date and time:  Tue, 30/08/2016 - 16:00 - 18:00 Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

Certain puzzling behavior of modal expressions in discourse has convinced a growing number of theorists that language of modality does not factor in truth-conditions, and that the story of how thought, communication and action interact must be modified to allow for the non-truth-conditional aspects of meaning. I argue that the lesson to draw from the puzzling behavior of modals is not that we need to abandon truth-conditional accounts of meaning, but that we need a more sophisticated account of how the meaning of modal utterances interacts with discourse context.

Seth Lazar (ANU): Aggregation and Risk

Philosophy - events - Mon, 2016-08-08 16:16
Philsoc seminar Date and time:  Tue, 06/09/2016 - 16:00 - 18:00 Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

Many people think that, faced with a choice between saving a life and averting a headache, one must save the life no matter how many people one could otherwise spare from suffering a headache. One can justify this intuition in different ways. In this paper, I consider the idea that the underlying problem is with a certain kind of aggregation, and ask how to apply that kind of anti-aggregationism to decision-making under risk.

Fabienne Peter (University of Warwick): From Objective Reasons to Public Reasons

Philosophy - events - Mon, 2016-08-08 12:21
MSPT seminar Date and time:  Mon, 19/09/2016 - 12:30 - 14:00 Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

The topic of this paper is the debate between defenders and critics of a public reason account of the justification of political authority. According to defenders of the Public Reason View, the practical justification of political authority is agreement-dependent. On the opposing view, the Objective Reason View, practical justification in this – or any – context is agreement-independent. I will grant that there are objective reasons and allow that they can affect practical justification.
