The CEU Department of Philosophy cordially invites you to a talk
(as part of its Departmental Colloquium series)
BART STREUMER (University of Groningen)
Irresponsible Equality

Thursday, 17 November (not the usual Tuesday slot) 2016, 5.30 PM, Nádor 15, Room 103

In this talk, I will first outline and defend an argument against the existence of moral responsibility. I will then show that this argument enables us to defend a Rawlsian version of egalitarianism, according to which justice permits inequalities only if they make the worst off members of society better off than they would otherwise be. I will end by outlining the practical implications of my defence of this view.
