Colloquium: Nomy Arpaly (Brown) – “On Benevolence”

February 28, 2018 @ 3:10 pm - 5:00 pm


It is widely agreed that benevolence is not the whole of the moral life, but it is not as widely appreciated that benevolence is an irreducible part of that life. This paper argues that Kantian efforts to characterize benevolence, or something like it, in terms of reverence for rational agency fall short. Such reverence, while credibly an important part of the moral life, is no more the whole of it than benevolence
