Noell Birondo (Philosophy) presented his paper "The Wrong Kind of Reasoning" at the University of Hong Kong on September 29, 2010. The paper argues that current moral philosophy often neglects, at its peril, the contributions of historically influential ethical theorists such as Aristotle and Kant. The paper demonstrates this by applying a broadly Aristotelian framework to a current concern in moral philosophy: the so-called problem of the wrong kind of reason.
