Harry Brighouse and Adam Swift's recent book Family Values (Princeton University Press, 2014) presents an integrated theoretical approach to a wide range of controversial normative issues concerning the family. It addresses questions concerning parents' rights to shape their children's values, their right to confer advantage on their children, and adults' right to parent their biological children. In this panel, the authors engage with a number of distinguished political theorists, defending their views of the distinct goods of familial relationships against a number of criticisms. The Panel is sponsored by the journal Critical Review of Social and Political Philosophy (CRISPP), which will publish the debate as a symposium in a forthcoming issue, and the ECPR Standing Group on Political Theory.
The Panel consists of Richard Bellamy (UCL/EUI) Chair, Harry Brighouse (University of Wisconsin–Madison); Adam Swift (Warwick University); Anca Gheaus (Sheffield University), Sarah Hannan (University of Manitoba), Daniel Weinstock (McGill University ), Christine Sypnowich (Queens University)
