First\, to understand the relationship between these accusations and traditional first-order ethics. Second\, to identify what makes MacIntyre’s account of this decline distinctive among anti-liberals: in doing so\, I focus particularly on strategies by which liberalism might accommodate or absorb his concerns. \nThis is a read-ahead meeting. The paper will be made available to those interested a week in advance of the event; please contact David Suarez for a copy. \nThe Kant & Post-Kantian German Idealism Group is a a subgroup of the History of Philosophy Research Group\, which focuses on European philosophy in Kant and post-Kantian traditions. \nSHARE URL: LOCATION:online CATEGORIES:Graduate,St. George ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
