Description

Matthew Hanser (Santa Barbara), 'Deferring to Others' to be held in the Lecture Room, 10 Merton Street, Oxford - Seminars in Moral Philosophy webpage

Abstract

When acting we often defer to the will or judgment of others: we obey orders, accede to requests, follow advice, and so on. What do these various modes of deference involve? How are the acts of the two parties (e.g. the commander and the subordinate) to be evaluated, and how are these evaluations related to one another?
