    Dear All,

    Please join us online on Wednesday, 20th October, at 4pm BST, for this term's first R:ETRO seminar, hosted by the Oxford University Centre for Corporate Reputation.

    Sareh Pouryousefi (Ryerson University) will be giving a paper entitled "Empirical and philosophical reflections on trust in groups" (with Jonathan Tallant).

    Abstract:

    A dominant claim in the philosophical literature on trust is that we should stop thinking in terms of group trustworthiness or appropriate trust in groups. In this paper we push back against this claim by arguing that philosophical work on trust would benefit from being brought into closer contact with empirical work on the nature of trust. We consider data on reactive attitudes and moral responsibility to adjudicate on different positions in the philosophical literature on trust. An implication of our argument is that the distinction between different kinds of groups – mere groups versus institutional groups – deserves more attention than is currently recognized in the philosophical literature on trust.
