You Oughta Know: A Defence of Obligations to Learn

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
Most of us spend a significant portion of our lives learning, practising, and performing a wide range of skills. Many of us also have a great amount of control over which skills we learn and develop. From choices as significant as career pursuits to those as minor as how we spend our weeknight leisure time, we exercise a great amount of agency over what we know and what we can do. In this paper we argue, using a framework first developed by Carbonell (2013) that in many real-world circumstances we have moral obligations to develop some skills rather than others.
