Location: Room 234, Liberal Arts Building "Political Absolutism in the United States" Dr. Shane Courtland   The contemporary United States government is a real-world example of Hobbesian absolutism. This claim might seem extraordinary and perhaps false. In a certain sense, these feelings are justified. It all turns upon a distinction between thick and thin absolutism. The thick conception does not adequately model the U.S. system. In fact, it seems obvious that the constitutional fr...

Location: LA 234 “The Moral Justification of Police Tactics” Dr. Jennifer Baker   There are various ethical approaches that can be used to address current concerns about policing. In this talk, I'll argue that only virtue ethics has us consider how law enforcement officers reconcile their behavior and motivation with the overall good of policing.

Location: LA 234 "Understanding the Affordable Care Act and Its Alternatives". Dr. James Bailey   How does the Affordable Care Act work? What are the problems it was intended to solve, and how well has it solved them relative to alternative systems? I argue that the ACA was intended to expand health insurance coverage and to fix a broken market in individual health insurance. It is likely to achieve these goals, but will do so at a high cost relative to alternatives, while failing t...

Location: LA 236 “Toleration and the Harm Principle” Dr. Andrew Cohen   Contemporary philosophical discussions of economic arrangements often involve talk of positive and negative rights.  There is a better—and older—way to discuss the issue: to focus directly on what should (morally) be tolerated in the economic arena.  This may not fully replace questions about rights, but it is a more basic question—at least if one believes people should ...
