LMU’s Center for Ethics and Philosophy in Practice (CEPP) invites you to the third edition of the Munich Lectures in Ethics. From 5-7 June 2023, Professor Susan Wolf, Edna J. Koury Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will speak in the LMU main building on the subject of moral responsibility under the heading “Responsibility: It’s a Matter of Time”.
“I am delighted that we will be joined for the third edition of the Munich Lectures in Ethics by Susan Wolf, one of the most renowned contemporary philosophers,” says Professor Monika Betzler, Chair of Practical Philosophy and Ethics and Spokesperson for the Center for Ethics and Philosophy in Practice. “With prominent representatives of the discipline such as Wolf this year and Philip Kitcher and Baroness Onora O’Neill in the preceding years, this series of lectures has become an international flagship event not only for the Center for Ethics and Philosophy in Practice here in Munich, but for philosophy in Germany as a whole. Susan Wolf’s scheduled lectures on the time dimension of moral responsibility – and hence on the associated virtue of humility as an element of apologies – are acutely relevant to the debates in which we are currently engaging in an increasingly polarized society.”
On 5 June, Professor Wolf will talk about "Humble Apologies" before being honored with a public reception. On 6 June she will lecture on "Being Responsible", before Professor Carla Bagnoli (from Modena), Professor Elinor Mason (Santa Barbara) and Dr. Leonhard Menges (Salzburg) comment on Wolf’s talks on 7 June.
