Hare on Obligation and Regret

Professor Caspar Hare [1] from MIT will be giving a talk this Monday at the Oxford Moral Philosophy Seminar [2] on “Obligation and Regret When There is No Fact of the Matter About What Would have Happened If You Had Not Done What You Did [3].” Here is an abstract of his talk:

This paper is about conditional under-specification and the objective ought. Moral: sometimes there is a difference between what there is most reason for you to do and what a fully informed, benevolent observer would want you to do.

A copy of Caspar’s talk can be found here [3], and he would welcome any comments/suggestions.
