Kerah Gordon-Solmon has a new article in the journal Philosophy and Public Affairs, one of the most prestigious journals for moral and political philosophy. While contractualism seems to resolve some morally fraught conflicts well, it does less well in situations where the conflicts involve substantial risks and benefits. Kerah proposes a novel solution to the problem, by drawing out the core thoughts behind contractualism. The article was workshopped at the Queen’s Political Philosophy Reading Group.
