Armstrong, the Chauncey Stillman Professor in Practical Ethics in the Department of Philosophy and the Kenan Institute for Ethics, and director of Kenan’s Moral Attitudes and Decision-Making Program, is one of two faculty joining the latest Parr Center Forum at UNC-Chapel Hill. The event, which runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at UNC’s Caldwell Hall, will seek to answer questions of whether individuals can make a difference when boycotting a harmful practice and whether moral duty to boycott depends on making a difference.
Sinnott-Armstrong will be joined in the debate by Shelly Kagan, the Clark Professor of Philosophy at Yale University.
The forum is co-sponsored by the Kenan Institute and is free and open to the public. For more information about the event, visit the Parr Center for Ethics website.
