About The Event

VIRTUES AND VICES: Friendship

What are the ethics of friendship? Are strong concepts of right and wrong useful in negotiating the complicated ways we form, maintain, and even conclude relationships of affection and trust with others? What ethical tools do we have to understand situations in which we’ve wronged others or been wronged in such relationships? How to understand the duties and obligations

that come with friendship, especially in cases of conflict with other moral duties? What distinguishes friendship from the various other ways we form effective ties with others, such as in acts of love and attachment, admiration, wonder, reciprocity, utility, and the like? Please join us for an informal discussion the nature of friendship and its continued relevance in contemporary ethical debate.
