During the reporting period, the team members have continued their research on the project’s main topics. The current project team includes the PI, Herlinde Pauer-Studer, the Praedoc, Franz Altner, and three Postdocs, Grace Paterson, Carlos Núñez, Matthew Rachar. Senior Postdoc Stephanie Collins joined the project for May and June 2019. Research on the project during the reporting period has focused on all three Subprojects, that is Subproject I: The metaphysics of agency and the normative framework of group agency; Subproject II: The consequences of the philosophical analysis of group agency for current developments in (a) moral philosophy and (b) legal philosophy; and Subproject III: The moral self-understanding of economic agents and their responsibility. Regarding Subproject 1: Núñez has focused on exploring the metaphysical possibility and rational permissibility of intending ends that involve the actions of others. He argues that it is both possible and permissible to intend ends that involve the behavior of other people, even when one does not believe such behavior is under one’s control. Núñez has published three papers on these topics in peer-reviewed Journals. Paterson aims at extending our understanding of speech acts and linguistic agency to collective agents and to proxy speech. She argues that a group is speaker of a particular speech act not in virtue of being the bearer of a particular communicative intention, but rather by taking on relevant responsibilities. During the reporting period, Paterson has published one article in a peer-revied Journal and prepared two other papers for submission. Rachar seeks to provide a novel account of collective intentions, viewing them as a combination of individual conditional intentions with certain properties (being reciprocal, sharing success conditions with others’ intentions). Conditional intentions with these features create a higher-order interdependence between the participants, which meets all the features collective intentions are commonly taken to have. He is also working on the relation between collective intention and normative principles of trust. In addition, he studies common intuitions about different kinds of collective behaviors using the methods of experimental philosophy. Three of Rachar’s articles are currently under submission with peer-reviewed journals. Regarding Subproject 2: Research by the PI Pauer-Studer has focused on exploring the moral implications of individual’s affiliation and identification with group agents and the kind of complicity this creates. She has also worked on authoritarian social interactions and the normative requirements of the rule of law. A further project of hers is to develop a relational account of morality and legality. During the reporting period, the PI has completed two articles, two others are in preparation for submission. Regarding Subproject 3: Collins has done research on organizations’ self-awareness and normative self-understanding. In his dissertation, Altner explores the connections between economic agency and moral responsibility. One article by Collins and an article by Altner are currently under review with peer-reviewed journals. During the reporting period, the team has organised several scientific events, among them two workshops and one conference (all with internationally recognized scholars on the philosophy of action).
