Well, we’re ready to get down to business and get this honor ethics project off the ground! We will have lots of exciting developments in the next few weeks, including the announcement of the first ever conference on honor and ethics (to be hosted by the University of Minnesota-Morris). This announcement will coincide with my invitations to scholars of honor from across the disciplines to join me as contributors to honorethics.org.

In the meantime, let me point your attention to two scholars who will be delivering keynotes at the above conference: Laurie Johnson (Kansas State) and Lad Sessions (Washington and Lee). Laurie Johnson, a political scientist, is the author of Thomas Hobbes: Turning Point for Honor (2010). Lad Sessions, a philosopher, is the author of Honor for Us: A Philosophical Analysis, Interpretation and Defense (2010).
