Collective Agency and Social Ontology in Political Philosophy
Location: Bilkent University
Dates: May 4-6, 2023
Description: Collective action plays a central role in politics. Understanding the conceptual underpinnings of collective agency, including related ideas such as collective responsibility and collective capability should therefore play a central role in political philosophy. These issues are most often explored within an area of philosophy known as ‘social ontology’, which draws on work in philosophy of mind, analytic metaphysics and ethics, and which has implications for disciplines such as psychology, law and political science.
Organizers: Bill Wringe, Barış Kaştaş, Evrensel Sebep, and Ahmet Gönüllü
