Prof. Dr Micha Werner (Greifswald): Choices, Harm, and Reconciliation: (Ir)reversibility in Contexts of Moral Philosophy

As part of the joint lecture series “Irreversible – The Manifestations of Change”, Micha Werner, since 2012 Professor of Philosophy with a focus on practical philosophy at the University of Greifswald, will inquire into moral philosophical considerations of (ir)reversibility in the context of normative actions and decision-making.

The distinction between reversible and irreversible changes, acts, or consequences plays a prominent role in various contexts of moral practice and ethical theory. At a first glance, the distinction itself as well as the reasons for its normative significance may seem trivial enough. On closer inspection, however, we will find that determining the (ir-)reversibility of changes, acts, or consequences usually expresses more complex conceptual and normative commitments; even certain commitments to specific moral positions and approaches.
