Response to Löhr: Why We Still Need a New Normativism about Collective Action

Philosophical Quarterly (2023)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Guido Löhr’s recent article makes several insightful and productive suggestions about how to proceed with the empirical study of collective action. However, their critique of the conclusions drawn in Gomez-Lavin & Rachar (2022) is undermined by some issues with the interpretation of the debate and paper. This discussion article clears up those issues, presents new findings from experiments developed in response to Löhr’s critiques, reflects on the role of experimental research in the development and refinement of philosophical theories, and adds to Löhr’s suggestions about the path forward
