Bernard Williams - Moral Luck

Location image of event venue


In this Meetup, we will read a brief article by the British philosopher Bernard Williams, who developed his work in the field of moral philosophy. The main theme is the relationship between "moral judgment" -in Kant’s account taken as free from external contingency-, and the concept of "luck" -which implies the character and existence of the agent-. Doesn't "luck" play a role in the way we make moral judgments? Can moral judgment be free from luck, which is part of the conditions of human life?

The chapter to read is number 2, but feel free to read other chapters to have a broad view.
