Department of Business Administration invites to a research seminar.

Monday, 20 February 2023 at 16:00-17:30 in room SOC-356 / Zoom

A presentation by Prof. Dr. Christoph Lütge (Technical University of Munich)

Academic philosophy has experienced a major upheaval during the last decade. Philosophers, psychologists, and economists have begun to challenge the traditional stance that philosophy is an undertaking best pursued from the safety of the armchair. Instead, they took the gloves off and brought philosophical questions to the experimental laboratory. Recently, especially the empirical study of human moral reasoning, i.e., „Experimental Ethics“, has come into focus. This lecture will explore the historical and systematic background of experimental ethics as well as some of the chances and opportunities that experimental philosophy and experimental (business) ethics hold.

Christoph Lütge studied business informatics and philosophy. Since 2010, he holds the Chair in Business Ethics at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), and since 2019, he is also the Director of the TUM Institute for Ethics in AI. Recent books include “An Introduction to Ethics in Robotics and AI” (with coauthors) and “Business Ethics: an Economically Informed Perspective” (with M. Uhl). He is a member of the Scientific Board of the European AI Ethics initiative AI4People as well as of the German Ethics Commission on Automated and Connected Driving.

The seminar is in English. Further information: pia.riips@taltech.ee.
