Lecture and seminar with Hans Bernhard Schmid

Seminar: Collective responsibilities of random collections

Monday, 2 Oct at 15h

Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory

Kraljice Natalije 45, 4th floor

In recent philosophical research, it has come to be widely accepted that we are justified in thinking of organizations as collective agents of their own, and thus as collective bearers of responsibility. One of the arguments for collective or corporate responsibility is that the responsibility in question often cannot be straightforwardly reduced to the responsibility of the individual members of the organization. In some cases, we expect people to organize themselves, and live up to the duties we have in the domain of joint action by teaming up and doing the right thing. Even of a random collection of perfect strangers, we sometimes normatively expect to act jointly, at least until the relevant organization appears on the scene. What kind of responsibility is at stake here?

Participants: Miljana Milojević (Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade), Časlav Koprivica (Faculty of Political Sciences, University of Belgrade), Olga Nikolić, Igor Cvejić, Petar Bojanić, Željko Radinković, Predrag Krstić and Rastko Jovanov (IFDT).
