Hille in Helsinki

In this talk, Dr. Hille Paakkunainen will argue that virtues of character are dispositions of practical inference, and that neo-Humean belief-desire psychology is inadequate to account for them.

Dr. Hille Paakkunainen is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Syracuse University. She works in metaethics, epistemology, and philosophy of action. Most of her work concerns the nature of various normative phenomena, such as having a good reason for doing something or being justified in believing something, and the relationship between such phenomena and forms of reasoning or agency.

The venue is wheelchair accessible.
