Ethics, Autonomy and Paternalism
Paternalism is standardly taken to be a bad thing: policies and practices are ruled out on the basis that they constitute paternalism, and it is frequently claimed that paternalistic interferences wrongly treat adults as if they were children. Increasingly, however, paternalism is being defended as something that can be morally justified. This module explores the extent to which arguments in favor of justified paternalism carry weight.

Philosophical Considerations on Psychological Research
Psychological research inevitably involves a variety of assumptions concerning the concepts of language and mentality that it uses: the nature of meaning; the nature of ‘mental states’; what constitutes memory; how voluntary and intentional actions are produced; the relation between reasons, inference, brain mechanism and action; and more. From the earliest times of reflection upon them, these concepts have been infected by misinterpretations, which psychologists are as prone to adopt as is anyone thinking about them.

The Ethics of Government Propaganda
This course will examine the nature and ethics of government propaganda by reviewing some contemporary (purported) examples of propaganda as well as literature on propaganda and related topics in moral and political philosophy. Government propaganda can be understood loosely as a state-supported strategy of providing partial, distorted or emotionally evocative presentations of information to a population in order to promote attitudes that serve the government's goals.

The Unity of Science (incl. Philosophy Research and Publish Lab)
This course on the unity of science (as a contested idea in philosophy) has a newly launched peer-learning based weekly Philosophy Research and Publish Lab as integral part.
On Tuesdays, we will discuss in a more-or-less standard graduate course research literature on the unity of science; on Wednesdays, we will use that know-that for deeping know-how regarding research and publishing in the lab.
