The Ethics of Boycotts

February 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Many people think that we have a moral duty to boycott harmful practices. But do you make a difference when you boycott a harmful practice? And does your moral duty to boycott this practice depend on whether or not you make a difference? Please join the Parr Center for Ethics for a debate between Shelly Kagan (Philosophy, Yale) and Walter Sinnott-Armstrong (Philosophy, Duke) on these issues. We will start with opening statements, then take questions from a moderator, then take questions from the audience.

This event, which is supported by the Institute for Humane Studies and the John Templeton Foundation, is free and open to all.
