Reminder: OZSW spring school, ethical theory & moral practice, deadline March 16

Dear all,

I am writing to advertise this year's OZSW spring school on "ethical theory
and moral practice" - a PhD course that I am organizing together with Sem
de Maagt (Utrecht).

This course is open to PhD students and - if there is enough space -
research masters students as well.

We have a great line-up of lecturers:

· Amanda Cawston (Tilburg University)
· Sophie Grace Chappell (The Open University, UK)
· Alberto Giubilini (University of Oxford)
· Pauline Kleingeld (University of Groningen)
· Sem de Maagt (Utrecht University)
· Sven Nyholm (Eindhoven University of Technology)
· Hanno Sauer (Utrecht University)
· Vuko Andric (University of Bayreuth)

Here is a description of the aims of this course:

This is a high-level course primarily aimed at PhD-students who already
have some background in ethics. The aim of the course is two-fold. First,
the course provides insight into recent work on the main normative theories
(consequentialism, Kantian ethics, and virtue ethics), different methods of
moral justification, and the use of theories and methods of justification
within contemporary applied ethics. Second, much attention is paid to
teaching participants to connect their own research projects to these
current developments within ethical theory, as well as to how to best
present one’s research in writing. The overarching aim of the course is to
help participants to improve their skills as researchers in philosophical

Some quick practical info:

Dates: 16-20 April 2018

Location: Woodbrooke Hotel, Barchem, The Netherlands
Deadline for registering: March 16, 2018

On behalf of myself and Sem de Maagt,
kind regards,
