6. Philosophy Colloquium - Joseph Heath, University of Toronto

When: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Where: Skinner : 1115
Event Type(s): Colloquium

"Cost-Benefit Analysis as an Expression of Liberal Neutrality"

The past few decades have seen an expansion in the use of cost-benefit analysis as a tool for policy evaluation in the public sector. This slow, steady creep has been a source of consternation to many philosophers and political theorists, who are inclined to view cost-benefit analysis as simply a variant of utilitarianism, and consider utilitarianism to be completely unacceptable as a public philosophy. I will attempt to show that this impression is misleading. Despite the fact that when construed narrowly, cost-benefit analysis does look a lot like utilitarianism, when seen in its broader context, in the way that it is applied, and the type of problems to which it is applied, it is better understood as an attempt by the state to avoid taking sides with respect to various controversial conceptions of the good.

Entry of ingested nucleic acid into the body's gene regulatory pathways could transform our concept of nutrition. We have established laboratory conditions that facilitate the detection of dietary nucleic acids.
