Daniel Breyer, associate professor of philosophy at Illinois State University, will present “The Faces Of Resentment” on Monday, April 4, at 10 a.m. in Stevenson Hall, room 401A.

ABSTRACT: It’s now common to think about moral responsibility and blame as importantly entangled with reactive attitudes like indignation and resentment. In this talk, I explore different ways of talking about and experiencing resentment in particular. What I argue is that these different “faces” of resentment can help us better understand, not only the relationship between resentment and responsibility, but also what it means to hold others (and ourselves) responsible.
