"The strongest reasons that count for or against any policy are always moral reasons," wrote philosophy student Stephen Tweedale at the beginning of a six-part blog series on developing an ethical framework for contemporary progressive politics. In this talk, Stephen will summarize his arguments, covering the ideas of John Rawls, TM Scanlon, Elizabeth Anderson and Martha Nussbaum.
Stephen Tweedale is a philosophy student at Simon Fraser University and blogs about politics and philosophy at Popcorn Machine.
The previously announced talk by Donald Gutstein has been postponed for personal reason.
