Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Korsgaard’s book “The Sources of Normativity” (Cambridge University Press 1996) has shaped metaethical debates on normativity, particularly the controversies between realism and constructivism. The book also provides the basis for a Kantian first-person account of morality.
In this seminar we will discuss, based on a close reading of the text, the strengths and shortcomings of Korsgaard’s arguments.

All students are required to have a copy of Korsgaard’s book (Paperback edition available at Facultas, NIG).

Requirements: Active Participation in class, one presentation and final seminar paper.

Note: The first meeting of this seminar (with an introduction to Korsgaard’s work) will be on Monday, December 11, 2017, 14:00-16:30;
Hörsaal 3C NIG.
