The philosophy of empathy

Opening hours / Beginning:

14 October 2022 - 15 October 2022

Workshop led by Prof. Dr. Monika Betzler, Prof. Dr. Erasmus Mayr and Hannah Read, Ph.D.

While empathy remains a subject of much debate across disciplines, many pressing philosophical questions regarding its nature and significance remain unanswered. For example, to what extent is empathy important for morality? What exactly is empathy in the first place? And what are the pathologies of empathy? The workshop brings together international scholars whose research addresses these and related philosophical issues.

Participants include: Olivia Bailey (UC Berkeley), Rae Langton (Cambridge/CAS Fellow), Heidi L. Maibom (University of Cincinnati), Neil Roughley (Duisburg-Essen), Gopal Sreenivasan (Duke), Karsten R. Stueber (College of the Holy Cross/CAS Fellow).

Registration is required for participation. You can find more information on the website of the Center for Advanced Studies or via email.
