Call for papers: Meta-Ethics and Normative Ethics
The Speculative Ethics Forum is a one day workshop-style event in which we’ll consider the most challenging matters of ethics. Ethical approaches of all sorts are welcomed–analytic, continental, ancient, medieval, Asian, and so on. Most papers are invited. There are two slots open for submissions. Any paper in ethical theory will be considered for acceptance. Bold and speculative inquiries are preferred to papers that primarily defend ground already gained or papers that are primarily scholarly. Our aim, in short, is to have a single day concentrated on expanding the horizons of ethics.

I recently had a fun podcast interview with Rose Eveleth from Gizmodo about engineering humans for a better planet. Gizmodo gave the interview the title “To Stop Climate Change, We Must Genetically Engineer Humans,” which is somewhat of a misnomer since I have never claimed that one ‘must’ genetically engineer humans in order to stop climate change. You can find the write-up here with some thoughtful comments from Rose:
