The SDSU Department of Philosophy and the Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs are pleased to host the Stephen L. Weber Graduate Conference in Ethics.

The conference will be held on April 22-24, in the College of Arts and Letters Building, in honor of the retiring university president and philosopher, Stephen Weber.

Graduate students from around the nation were invited to present their latest work in the fields of ethical theory, metaethics, political philosophy, philosophy of law and applied ethics.

Stephen Darwall will deliver the keynote address titled, “Morality’s Distinctiveness,” at 5 p.m., April 22, in CAL-101. Darwall is currently Andrew Downey Orrick Professor of Philosophy at Yale University and John Dewey Distinguished University Professor Emeritus at University of Michigan.

Chris Heathwood will deliver the plenary address titled, “Could Morality Have a Source?” at 5 p.m., April 23, in CAL-101. Heathwood is a professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Both the keynote and the plenary address will be followed by a questions and answers session. Local philosophers and the general public are encouraged to attend what will certainly be an interesting discussion.
