David Sobel, Irwin and Marjorie Guttag Professor, Ethics and Political Philosophy, at Syracuse University, will speak on the topic of "Valuing Can Ground Value."

Professor Sobel works primarily in ethics. Much of his research has focused on understanding what makes something valuable. Recently he has also explored how demanding our moral obligations can be, problems for some libertarian conceptions of our rights, as well as the case for a non-naturalist conception of normativity.
