11:15 amLoyalty and Morality workshop Thomas Commons
Many social movements, especially those representing disadvantaged communities, call on us to recognize universal values or rights. Additionally, morality requires us to treat people equally. And at the same time, groups often call for loyalty--they exhort us to join together, look out for each other, and support our community. This lunchtime workshop, presented by Beta Omicron Distinguished Alumni Visitor Christopher Ciocchetti '95, will discuss the conflict between loyalty and morality. Should universal rights always trump loyalty to a specific group? Should we be expected to be loyal to others because of our race, sex, nationality, or shared experiences? Is the answer different for different groups? Is loyalty a virtue? Can morality be maintained without loyalty? Could we without loyalties and principles alone? Lunch will be provided.
