The Ethics & Political Theory Reading Group meets roughly every other week to read and discuss primary and secondary texts in ethics and political theory, broadly construed. All approaches and methods are considered in an open and critical environment. The readings are decided early in the semester according to the participants’ current interests. Faculty, researchers and students are welcome.
