Philosophy Seminar Series: Tom Dougherty
Philosophy Seminar Series
Tom Dougherty | University of North Carolina | 3:30pm, 9 August, 2023
Social scripts specify the normal way for people to interact in certain situations. For example, a social script for a restaurant conversation explains why the world over, these conversations take a similar form. I will discuss what social scripts are, how they can scaffold or constrain people’s behavior (e.g. by leading people to voluntarily take part in sexual encounters that they would ideally like to avoid), and how these constraints could be ameliorated by more empowering scripts.
