In this wholly original study, Josep Corbi asks how one should relate to a certain kind of human suffering, namely, the harm that people cause one another. Relying upon real life examples of human suffering--including torture, genocide, and warfare--as opposed to thought experiments, Corbi proposes a novel approach to self-knowledge that runs counter to standard Kantian approaches to morality.
Josep E. Corbi is a full professor at the University of Valencia. He has published Minds, Causes, and Mechanisms. A Case Against Mechanisms (with Josep L. Prades; Oxford: Blackwell Publishers, 2000) and Un lugar para la moral (Madrid: Antonio Machado, 2003), as well as a number of papers in philosophy of mind, meta-ethics and epistemology.
