Ethics Around the Table: Barry Maguire
January 21, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Join us for a Parr Center “Ethics Around the Table” event! Lunch will be provided, and registration is kindly required.
Barry Maguire will present, “Eating Too Much, Sleeping Too Little, Avoiding the Dentist, and other Abstract Philosophical Puzzles”
Abstract: I will present an intuitive and theoretically powerful way of thinking about how to make decisions. A host of puzzles show that this way of thinking about how to make decisions would support all manner of familiar but intuitively irrational activity. I’ll offer an alternative way of thinking about how to make decisions that is even more intuitive (though a bit less theoretically powerful) and that solves all these puzzles.
