“Greed and Justice in Aristotle’s Ethics”
Abstract: Aristotle’s account of the virtue of justice has been criticized on the grounds that Aristotle gives an overly tidy minded picture of what just and unjust motivation look like, and reduces them to a single kind, namely, greed or lack thereof. I attempt to develop a defense of Aristotle’s account of justice, by arguing that what Aristotle means by ‘greed’ (pleonexia) is not simply excessive desire, but a complex motivational state that includes characteristic desires and beliefs about oneself and one’s proper relation to others, and that it is fundamentally a social disposition, not a simple emotion or desire, as is usually thought. The opposite of the greedy person is the isos or ‘fair-minded’ person—someone whose desires and beliefs reflect a correct perception of what his or anyone else’s fair share of some social good ought to be.

The University of Utah is hosting this year’s Intermountain Philosophy Conference this Friday. Here is the website with the schedule and other details. Matt Haber has done an excellent job putting all of this together!
Here is the announcement (the official site is here):
Welcome To The 21th SLCC Undergraduate Student Philosophical Conference Website!
We are thrilled to announce the 3rd annual International Philosophy Conference and the 21st Undergraduate Philosophical Conference held by Salt Lake Community College! This year’s conference will be a two day event in which we will explore ‘Education as a Creative Production of Culture.’
The academic portion of the conference will take place on Friday, November 9th, 2012. It will begin with a one-hour plenary session featuring our keynote speaker Dr. James Faulconer. This will be followed by a two-hour panel session in which students will present their work inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche and Pierre Bourdieu.
The artistic portion of the conference will take place on Monday, November 12, 2012. In this session we will enjoy a presentation by Utah Symphony Music Director Thierry Fischer. He will be speaking about, ‘Noise and Noises: Being Surrounded by Noise Affects Our Perception and Creativity.’
We are currently seeking undergraduate students to present papers at the breakout panels. These panels will be conducted and moderated by SLCC and/or visiting professors. Each student will read their paper (maximum of 15 minutes), after which a discussion Q/A will take place. We hope to have 5-7 papers presented at each panel.
The papers may be broader in scope than just Friedrich and/or Bourdieu alone. Furthermore, they need not be exclusive to our conference (enabling students to present at more than one conference). The deadlines are as follows: October 1, 2012 for Abstracts and October 31, 2012 for final papers. Please use the Paper Submission Form to submit your entry to the conference. We will accept papers from anyone in the world that wishes to participate.

This Friday, 18 November, hosted by BYU. I am posting here the program and a map of the BYU campus. And here are some verbal instructions for finding your way to the conference:
We are pleased to announce the program of the 6th annual Intermountain Philosophy Conference, to be held this Friday, November 18.
The program is attached. A campus map is also attached.
Driving instructions: as you come from the north (as most of you will), exit at the University Parkway exit. (There is a lot of road construction in the area; sorry about that.) Come east and south on University Parkway until you get to 450 East (Provo–see map); then turn south for a block. At the traffic light, turn east on North Campus Drive for a block and then turn into the parking lot next to the Museum of Art (building #64 on the map). You will find free visitor parking there. From there walk southwest across the quad to the Joseph F. Smith Building (JFSB) (#70 on the map, the building with the glass facade on the east side), where the meeting will be held. (Please note that there are three buildings ending in “Smith”; ours is directly west of the library.) Go down to the basement via stairways or elevators, and to the middle of the east side, where room B192 is located, in front of the spiral staircase. That is where the opening ceremony and keynote address will be held. The following sessions will be in other rooms in the basement of the same building.
