Ethics and Political Philosophy Group Talk (Daniel Muñoz, UNC)

Daniel Muñoz is an assistant professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina, where he also forms part of the core faculty of the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Program. His work mostly counts as “normative ethics,” which means it’s too concrete to be “meta,” but not concrete enough to be useful. He is writing a book called “What We Owe to Ourselves.”

Valerie Tiberius, a professor of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota, focuses her research and teaching on ethics and moral psychology, with a special interest in applying Humean principles to modern philosophical questions. Much of her work is centered at the junction of practical philosophy and practical psychology, examining how both disciplines can meaningfully improve lives.

John Campbell, the Willis S. and Marion Slusser Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, has main research interests in the theory of meaning, metaphysics, and the philosophy of psychology. He is currently working on the question of whether consciousness, and in particular sensory awareness, plays any key role in our knowledge of our surroundings.

Ethics and Political Philosophy Group Talk (Mark Schroeder, Southern California)

Mark Schroeder (Southern California) works on areas of philosophy in some way connected to metaethics. He is interested in the ways in which rationality, reasons, value, and other “evaluative’” or “normative” categories are related to the mundane, physical world in which we live, in which things are round, red, or left of one another. For example, are there really facts about what is rational or not, to go along with the facts about what is round or not?
