The Aristotelian Society presents:
Dr Alison Hills (Oxford) – Moral and Aesthetic Virtue
Alison Hills is Tutorial Fellow in Philosophy at St John’s College, University of Oxford. Her research is in Moral Philosophy. Her PhD was on Kant’s moral theory, in particular, on whether Kant shows that we have reason to be moral. She also has interests in metaethics (especially moral knowledge) and normative ethics (especially Kant’s moral theory). She has also written on applied ethics, about whether our intentions have any moral significance, and about the moral status of animals. Her most recent book, The Beloved Self (OUP), addressed the conflict between egoism and morality, and whether we can justify claims that we have reasons to be moral.
