Description:

Moral particularism is the view that the ethical choices we face in real life are too complicated to be resolved by applying universal moral principles or rigid decision making procedures. This lecture will explore moral particularism in virtue ethics and feminist care ethics, asking if they provide satisfying alternatives to more traditional principle based approaches.
