Many of our reasons for actions are derivative in the sense that they are explained by an instrumental or logical relationship between the supported action and some other action there is reason to perform. The same goes for many truths about what we ought to do. However, the principles governing the transmission from non-derivative to derivative reasons and oughts are a matter of controversial discussion in the philosophy of normativity. This workshop focuses on questions related to the phenomenon of normative transmission (see the PDF for more details).
