The aim of the conference is to bring together theorists working on the neutral/relative divide. This divide marks a fault line in normative ethics and rational choice theory.

We seek long abstracts (maximum 1,000 words) that address central questions surrounding the neutral/relative divide. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: 

  • Agent-Relative Consequentialism
  • Good-relative-to-x (or Goodme)
  • The Structure of Normative Theories
  • The Paradox of Deontology
  • Consequentializing
  • Honoring v. Promoting
  • Time bias
  • Interpersonal bias Intrapersonal bias
