To be presented as a symposium at the APA Pacific in San Francisco, April 6, 2023
Very interesting work! What, in your view, constitutes agency? And do you discuss any ways we can use to determine who are agents and who are not, in your full paper? Finally, does your analysis restrict agency to individuals alone or is there scope for even collectives or groups to be agents?
This is really exciting work and would love to read a full draft soon! Out of curiosity, have you interacted with Jeff Sebo’s (2017) "Agency and Moral Status"? From memory, that paper may offer a lot of interesting/beneficial overlap with your own conception of moral status as it corresponds to agency.
