Philosophy - events - Wed, 2017-01-18 10:19
Philsoc seminar Date and time:  Tue, 28/02/2017 - 15:30 - 17:30 Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

Social egalitarians argue that equality should be understood in ‘social’ or ‘relational’ terms. They claim the most deeply objectionable forms of inequality involve social hierarchy, as exemplified by slavery, patriarchy, and other pernicious divisions of class or caste. The goal of egalitarianism is to replace hierarchy with relations of equality. Social egalitarians worry that contemporary political philosophy has lost sight of this goal.

Interesting enigmas in the demography of fertility: examples from Switzerland

Demography - events - Mon, 2017-01-16 13:04
Date and time:  Fri, 17th Feb 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm Presenter:  Dr Marion Burkimsher Location:  Seminar Room A, Coombs Building #9

Demography is about good statistics, but should we believe the numbers we produce?
For instance, do these puzzles have good explanations?

If an average woman in Switzerland goes through her full reproductive life when the average fertility rate (TFR) is 1.5, how does she end up with an average of 1.8 children?

How can it be that the TFR of foreigners is higher that that of the native Swiss, yet they have smaller families?

If spacing between children has remained constant, how is it that the difference in mean age of successive birth orders has declined?

John Broome (Stanford/ANU): Climate change, efficiency, future generations and the non-identity effect.

Philosophy - events - Wed, 2016-11-09 21:13
MSPT seminar Date and time:  Mon, 14/11/2016 - 12:30 - 14:00 Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

Greenhouse gas is an externality. Elementary economic theory claims that any externality creates inefficiency. This means it is possible to correct the externality in a way that benefits some people and is bad for no one. So a response to climate change can be designed that is in in the interest of everyone in every generation; it is not necessary for the present generation to make a sacrifice for the sake of the future.
