Conference Topic: T.M. Scanlon’s theory of morality centers on his account of moral motivation, which provides a characterization of narrow moral wrongness and defends common assumptions about its importance and practical authority. This conference loosely focuses on Scanlon’s views on moral motivation and the value of self-governing persons (developed most prominently in chapters 2 and 4 of What We Owe to Each Other) and various alternatives.
