Wonder And Generosity As Guides To The Ethics And Politics Of Respect For Difference (2003–2007)

This project concerns how wonder, based on accepting others' differences, and generosity, based on mutual respect,can supplement each other to establish an ethics and politics of respect for gender and cultural difference. It contributes to understanding the relationship between equality and difference in public life - the extent to which we must treat others as similar in the name of equality and the extent to which we must recognise significant differences. The project will advance philosophical understanding of how to conceptualise due respect for the diversity of people's lives and experiences. ''
