The Appiah Reading Group will start in early March. In each session, a commentator will provide a summary of a chapter and some points for consideration. The post will then be open for discussion, and we welcome your thoughts on any aspect of the chapter.

Some ‘off-line’ sessions will also be held in Oxford during this time. Please contact me if you are interested in attending the off-line sessions, as the numbers will be limited to ensure a smooth running of the reading group. ** Note: It is NOT necessary to have attended the off-line sessions in order to contribute to the online sessions. **

The schedule for the online sessions is as follows:

3 March Neil Levy (Melbourne and Oxford): 1. Introduction: The Waterless Moat
17 March Steve Clarke (CAPPE and Oxford): 2. The Case against Character
31 March S. Matthew Liao (Oxford): 3. The Case against Intuition
7 April Thom Brooks (Newcastle): 4. The Varieties of Moral Experience
14 April Guy Kahane (Oxford): 5. The Ends of Ethics

The off-line sessions will take place in the Ryle Room at 10 Merton Street in Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford. We will initially hold two sessions on the following dates and times.

Session 1: 3 March, 3:00pm to 4:30pm
Session 2: 17 March, 3:00pm to 4:30pm

After that, we shall consider holding more off-line sessions, should there be an interest.

We have a very nice line up of commentators. So do join us for the discussions and let your colleagues know about this event.

    To those who are following the Appiah Reading Group, I just realized that I made a mistake in my initial post regarding the schedule for the Reading Group.

    We had intended to post bi-weekly, but in my initial post, I said that Thom Brooks would be posting on April 7 and Guy Kahane would be posting on April 14.

    The correct schedule for the two sessions should be as follows:

    14 April Thom Brooks (Newcastle): 4. The Varieties of Moral Experience
    28 April Guy Kahane (Oxford): 5. The Ends of Ethics

    My apologies for the confusion. Do join us for the discussions on those days instead.
