"Blame and Retribution"
Sixth Annual Hudson River Philosophy Conference
Manuel R. Vargas is Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, San Diego. His research focuses on the overlap of moral, psychological, and legal issues concerning human agency and freedom, including especially blame, punishment, and moral responsibility. His work emphasizes the social aspects of our moral practices and the challenges of fitting in our normative aspirations with a broadly naturalistic picture of humans. He is the author of "Building Better Beings: A Theory of Moral Responsibility" (OUP, 2013), and co-author, with John Martin Fischer, Robert Kane, and Derk Pereboom, of "Four Views on Free Will" (Blackwell, 2007). He co-edited, with Gideon Yaffe, "Rational and Social Agency: The Philosophy of Michael Bratman" (OUP, 2014).
Vargas’s research has won numerous national awards, prizes, grants, and fellowships. Building Better Beings was awarded the American Philosophical Association's Book Prize in 2015 (given every two years for the best book in philosophy by a younger scholar). He also writes about Latinx and Latin American philosophy and was a recipient of the first American Philosophical Association Prize in Latin American Thought.
