  • Daniel Coren, "Why Can't We Be Friends?  Aristotle's EN 1159a3-13"
    Apr 17, 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
    Via Zoom
    Daniel argues that, for Aristotle, all friendships require a considerable degree of rational self-interest. He argues, further, that this insight helps to solve two widely discussed puzzles: (1) whether friendship norms conflict with moral norms, and (2) whether they conflict with epistemic norms.
  • Jay Elliott, "Aristotle on the Voluntary in Other Animals"
    May 15, 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM
    via Zoom
    Aristotle claims that both humans and other animals can act voluntarily. This claim is surprising, he also associates the voluntary with the distinctively human capacity for rationality. Jay Elliott offers a solution to this puzzle.
