Moral Deference and Practical Deliberation – with Adina Covaci Common Room Philosophy

This episode is an interview with Warwick Philosopher Adina Covaci. We discuss her route into philosophy, why ethics professors might not act ethically and her recent argument for the wrongness of regularly deferring to others on your moral opinions.  Listen to this podcast for an exploration of questions such as: What book would Adina send back to her 16 year old self? Why is it wrong to repeatedly engage in moral deference?  What is practical deliberation, and why is it important to our lives? Is obeying government Covid-19 guidelines an example of repeated moral deference?
