Philosophy at St Andrews

Philosophical Quarterly Essay Prize

"Effective altruism can be viewed as both a philosophy and a social movement. We are interested in the philosophy."

What are its core philosophical commitments, and are they tenable?

For example: is effective altruism compatible with agent-centred partiality for particular charitable causes? Should non-consequentialists understand benevolence in effective altruist terms?

The Philosophical Quarterly welcomes essays of 8,000 words or fewer addressing these questions.
