Biography:

  • BA (Hons), Memorial University of Newfoundland

Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Ethan completed his BA at Memorial University, where for his honours thesis he examined the meta-ethical implications of Kantian moral theory. His current research extends this project, focusing on the perceived need of a pre-theoretical basis to ground our subsequent moral theories, in an effort to draw from Kant a conception that is not exclusively “Kantian.”
