Our goal with MetaEssen is to provide a forum for philosophers, especially more junior philosophers in or around Europe, to share new work in a congenial environment on a topic of recent interest concerning the nature of ethics, understood broadly to include familiar metaethical questions on the metaphysics, epistemology, semantics, and psychology of normativity, but also less familiar questions where the boundaries between metaethics and normative ethics might be less sharp. The format involves extensive discussion of pre-read papers.
