Call for Papers

New Deadline for submissions: 22.06.2012

T he application of formal tools from logic and rational choice theory to the analysis of ethical concepts and theories is a rapidly growing field of research. It has shed new light on a variety of concepts that are central to ethical theory, such as freedom, responsibility, values, norms, and conventions. We invite submissions to Formal Ethics 2012, to be held at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy on October 11th to 13th, 2012. The workshop aims to bring together researchers at the crossroads of ethical theory and formal methods.

Aside from the contributed talks, the workshop will feature keynote addresses from:

JOHN F. HORTY (Maryland)
