May 9, 2014 | Frank Hindriks on 'The Obligation to Take Responsibility Together'
Prof. Frank Hindriks (Adjunct Professor Ethics, Social and Political Philosophy, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Groningen) will give a talk on his work in progress.
Prof. Hindriks' core topics of research are social freedom and moral responsibility. He investigates these topics at a number of levels – those of individual human beings, social groups, organizations, and social institutions. Among the questions he pursues are: ‘Do individuals need moral emotions such as guilt and resentment in order to be responsible agents?’, ‘What, if anything, is wrong about discrimination?’, ‘What is the significance of institutions such as money, marriage, and property?’, and ‘Does it make sense to blame a corporation?’. All these questions fit within the overarching research themes of agency, sociality, and normativity.
