[Edit: Thanks to a reader who alerted me to the fact that the entire lectures were not uploaded. That has been fixed, and Shannon French’s very engaging talk on warrior codes has been added as well]

I finally got around to uploading the talks given at the Midwest Philosophy Colloquium’s Honor and Ethics mini-conference. The conference was held at the University of Minnesota, Morris, on April 6, 2012.

Some more talks from that event may be posted soon—I’m just waiting for permission from the relevant speakers.
