Kadish Workshop in Law, Philosophy, & Political Theory: John Tasioulas

Friday, April 12, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


John Tasioulas, Professor and Chair of Politics, Philosophy, and Law at the Dickson Poon School of Law–King’s College London, is also the Director of the Yeoh Tiong Lay Centre for Politics, Philosophy, & Law. His research interests have included publications in the following areas: changes to scientific research methodologies, ethics in robots and artificial intelligence, embedding ethical principles in collective decision support systems,  diverse topics in the field of human rights, and the philosophy of international law.

Workshop description:

This course is a workshop for discussing work-in-progress in moral, political, and legal theory. The workshop creates a space for students to engage directly with philosophers, political theorists, and legal scholars working on normative questions toward the goal of fostering critical thinking about concepts of value and developing analytical thinking and writing skills. Another aim is to bring together people from different disciplines and perspectives who have strong normative interests or who speak to issues philosophers and theorists should know something about. The complete list of invited speakers is available on the workshop web site. https://www.law.berkeley.edu/research/kadish-center-for-morality-law-public-affairs/workshop-law-philosophy-political-theory/

The format of the workshop is as follows. For the sessions with guest presenters, lunch will be served starting at 12:00. We’ll begin at 12:15. A designated commentator will lead off with a 15-minute comment on the paper. The presenter will have 5-10 minutes to respond and then we will open up the discussion to the group. The first part of the workshop will be open to non-enrolled students, faculty, and visitors who wish to participate in the workshop discussion. We’ll stop for a break at 2 and those not enrolled in the course will leave. Enrolled students will continue the discussion with the guest from 2:10 to 3:00. Papers are circulated in advance of the workshop and participants are expected to have read the papers before the session.

All classes meet in 141 Law Building (unless otherwise noted*), Fridays from 12:00pm-3:15pm. To request a copy of papers not posted to the web site contact: amatullahas@berkeley.edu.
