Character Trouble with John Doris

Thursday, March 2, 2023 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Mann Library, 160
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

Human character has less of an influence on action than both philosophical theory and our everyday experiences would have us think, according to John M. Doris, the Peter L. Dyson Professor of Ethics in Organizations and Life and professor in the Sage School of Philosophy­. A leading proponent of interdisciplinary approaches to moral psychology exploring questions of character, virtue, and agency since the 1990's, Doris has now collected over 20 years of his work into Character Trouble: Undisciplined Essays on Moral Agency and Personality (Oxford University Press, 2022). In a live, hybrid Chats in the Stacks book talk, Doris will reflect on this collection, as well as discuss recent developments in understanding of moral cognition and behavior, and the moral psychology of character. 

This talk is sponsored by Mann Library. Light refreshments will be served.
