Franklin on APA Panel

Professor of Philosophy A. Todd Franklin was a panelist at the Central Division meeting of the American Philosophical Association held February 26-29 in Chicago. The discussion focused on ethical assessments of Abraham Lincoln.

Franklin’s paper, “It’s Not That Simple,” was offered in response to an attempt to characterize Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation as a clear basis for considering Lincoln worthy of moral praise. The paper contextualized the emergence of the Emancipation Proclamation and highlighted the ways in which any moral assessment of Lincoln would be rather complicated.
