Samuel Scheffler is a University Professor and professor of Philosophy and Law at NYU. He works mainly in the areas of moral and political philosophy and the theory of value. His publications include six books: The Rejection of Consequentialism (1982, rev. ed. 1994), Human Morality (1992), Boundaries and Allegiances (2001), Equality and Tradition (2010), Death and the Afterlife (ed.

Ted Sider is a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Andrew W. Mellon Chair at Rutgers University. He specializes mainly in metaphysics (time, identity, mereology, modality, supervenience, fundamentality). He also has research and/or teaching interests in philosophy of language, logic, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mathematics, and philosophy of physics. Recently he has been thinking about how the choice of conceptual tools for articulating metaphysical questions (e.g., modality vs. fundamentality vs. ground) affects how we answer those questions, especially questions about the metaphysics of science.
