Meanwhile we are pleased to invite philosophers to comment on papers at the workshop. Anyone interested in attending the workshop is invited to submit a short note indicating her/his interest in commenting on a paper or chairing a session to Uri Leibowitz.

We would be very grateful if you could distribute this information to colleagues and graduate students who might be interested in the event.

Looking ahead: the final conference for the Ethics and Explanation Project will take place early in 2016. Suggestions for a theme for the final conference are welcome using the same contact as above. Additional information about the final conference will be advertised in due course.
