Guest Lecture on Elizabeth Anscombe's Moral Philosophy

Thursday, October 13, 2011

The philosophy of the late Elizabeth Anscombe, professor of philosophy at Cambridge University, literary executor of Ludwig Wittgenstein, and widely admired defender of the Church's teaching on contraception, was the subject of a lecture on Friday, Oct 15th, by Dr. Jose Maria Torralba, a professor of philosophy at the University of Navarre in Spain and currently a visiting scholar at the University of Chicago. 

Speaking on, "Anscombe's Moral Philosophy: Human Action, Moral Ought, and Practical Truth," Torralba explained some of the main themes in Anscombe's moral philosophy, including Anscombe's concern to reject consequentialism through a defense of the principle of double effect and a careful examination of the notion of "intention".  Torralba also explained how Anscombe made use of an account of what she called "brute facts" to criticize Hume's "is/ought" distinction. 

The morning following the lecture, Dr. Torralba met with students at the Bean for continued discussions.  Students included the participants in Dr. Pakaluk's "Advanced Readings" seminar, who had just been studying a paper by Anscombe for that class.


Dr. Jose Maria Torralba explains a fine point in Anscombe's moral philosophy at the Bean, while Andrew Davis, Leslie Nagel, Maureen Bielinski, and Will Hughes listen on.
