Unconstrained and accelerating greenhouse gas emissions associated with air travel threaten everyone's wellbeing. Popular discourse notwithstanding, neither efficiency gains nor voluntary action (via restraint or the purchase of carbon offsets) has any prospect of having a meaningful effect on emissions growth in this sector. The most common present-day response to the problem--encouraging voluntary, individual rational responses to those risks--cannot succeed due to the nature of human reason and the structure of the problem itself.

David Sobel (Syracuse): The Case for Stance-Dependent Value

Date and time:  Thu, 29/06/2017 - 15:30 - 17:30 Seminar Thursday Seminar School of Philosophy Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

The Case for Stance-Dependent Value

Having a contingent favoring attitude or stance toward something, even when one has no reason to have that favoring attitude, such as a preference for Lagavulin over Talisker or flannel jammies over cotton, can give one reason to choose (and ground a well-being benefit in) what one so favors over the alternative, at least in matters of mere taste. Our favoring attitudes can ground some reasons.

Janice Dowell (Syracuse): Flexible Contextualism, Contrastivism, Inheritance, and Iffy ‘Ought’s

Philosophy - events - Mon, 2017-06-05 18:44
Date and time:  Thu, 15/06/2017 - 15:30 - 17:30 Seminar Thursday Seminar School of Philosophy Location:  Coombs Seminar Room B

Title: Flexible Contextualism, Contrastivism, Inheritance, and Iffy ‘Ought’s
J.L. Dowell and Aaron Bronfman

Fabrizio Cariani has argued against a Kratzer-style semantics for deontic modals on the grounds that it validates both the principle of Inheritance (if p entails q, then ought p entails ought q) and, together with Kratzer’s own widely accepted semantics for the indicative conditional, that if p, ought p, both of which raise puzzles. He then uses the rejection of Inheritance as a motivation for his own contrastivist view, Resolution Semantics.

Gillian Russell (UNC): Deviance and Vice: Strength as a theoretical virtue in the epistemology of logic

Philosophy - events - Mon, 2017-06-05 18:43
Date and time:  Thu, 08/06/2017 - 15:30 - 17:30 Seminar Thursday Seminar School of Philosophy Location:  Coombs Seminar Room B

Abstract:  Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in an abductive approach to the epistemology of logic. The rough idea would be that different logics represent different theories of the relation of logical consequence, and that we should select among these as we do in other sciences, based on adequacy to the data and possession of theoretical virtues and vices. But what are the vices and virtues in a logical theory?

CREATE-ing Pathways to Child Wellbeing in Disadvantaged Communities: Building Capacity for Type 2 Translation

RSSS - events - Fri, 2017-06-02 10:33
Date and time:  Monday, 5th June 2017 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm Location or Venue:  Jean Martin Room, Level 3 Beryl Rawson Building ANU Presenter:  Ross Homel, AO Foundation Professor of Criminology & Criminal Justice, Griffith University Contact Person:  CSRM Contact email:  csrm.comms@anu.edu.au

In order to address complex adaptive problems such as child maltreatment, school dropout, and youth crime, systemic approaches like collective impact initiatives are required. Within these methodologies multiple sectors work collaboratively to address agreed goals that are measurable, and are supported by a backbone support organisation. However the collective impact movement neglects the extensive research in prevention science, especially as it relates to schools and human services. This project explicitly aims to remedy this defect.
