Seth Lazar presenting at Acts and Omissions Workshop

Seth Lazar presenting at Acts and Omissions Workshop
Wednesday 5 September 2018

ACU is running a one-day workshop on Acts and Omissions. Featuring talks by:


Roger Crisp (ACU / Oxford)

Stephanie Collins (ACU)

Holly Lawford-Smith (University of Melbourne) Seth Lazar (ANU) Justin Oakley (Monash)


The acts and omissions distinction received a great deal of philosophical attention in the 1970s and 80s, but since that time the amount of literature on the topic has decreased. On the face of it, since no consensus has been reached, this seems odd, given the huge significance of the distinction. The aim of this workshop is to take stock of where current thinking on the distinction has reached, and to seek possible future directions for research.


Where: Room 420.2.21, Level 2 Mary Glowery Building, Australian Catholic University, 115 Victoria Parade, Fitzroy, Melbourne

When: 10.00 am – 5.15pm Saturday 22 September


The workshop is free to attend. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. If you would like to attend the workshop it will help us with the catering numbers if you could register here:
