What We Owe to Hypocrites: Contractualism and the Speaker-Relativity of Justification
Start Date: 2/13/2015Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 2/13/2015End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description:
Johann D. Frick, Assistant Professor of Philosophy and the University Center for Human Values, Princeton University

It is a familiar feature of our ethical discourse that the strength of a moral argument often depends on more than its content. Presented interpersonally, its justificatory force may also depend on the identity of the speaker. An argument may serve to justify an action or policy when uttered by one speaker, while others lack the standing to offer the same argument as a justification for the action in question. I argue that this “speaker-relativity” of moral justification has not received the attention from moral philosophers that it merits. Amongst other things, it raises novel problems for a number of prominent moral theories, most interestingly for Scanlonian contractualism.
