Broken Campaign Promises and Their Emotional Aftermath
Adrienne Martin is the Akshata Murty '02 and Rishi Sunak Associate Professor of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics and George R. Roberts Fellow at Claremont McKenna College. She is the author if How We Hope: A Moral Psychology (2014) and several journal articles on moral emotions. She is currently writing a book examining interpersonal hope, Hope in Humanity, and editing The Routledge Handbook of Love in Philosophy. If a promise seems to invite trust, yet is binding even on an untrustworthy individual, Martin explores when and why trusting and promising come together, and come apart.
Professor Martin's Athenaeum presentation is part of her installation ceremony as the Akshata Murty '02 and Rishi Sunak Associate Professor of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.
