There is a call for abstracts for the Fourth Annual Arizona Workshop in Normative Ethical Theory that will be held in Tucson, Arizona on January 3-5, 2013.

Abstracts are welcome in any area or on any topic in normative ethical theory (to be distinguished as well as possible from metaethics, political philosophy, and applied ethics).

Abstracts should be 2-3 double-spaced pages and are due no later than Monday June 3, 2012. Please send abstracts by email to Professor Mark Timmons at mtimmons (at) u.arizona.edu. Those who presented at the 2011 or 2012 workshops are not eligible for presenting at the 2013 workshop.

Readers of Ethics Etc might be interested in an interview I did with the BBC One Planet about human engineering and climate change. The interview segment starts at around the 11 minute mark.

Here is an amusing cartoon that appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald, drawn by Cathy Wilcox, about our “Human Engineering and Climate Change” paper.
