When does ignorance excuse?Why is it that ignorance sometimes excuses morally wrong behavior but sometimes doesn't? How might the fact that some ignorance is culpable and some is non-culpable bear upon this question? Does all non-culpable ignorance serve as a legitimate excuse? When is an agent culpable for being ignorant?
Daniel Miller, a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy, will lead a discussion of this question on Thursday, Sept. 20 at 5:30 p.m. in 302 Brooks Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
