M.A. (Philosophy), Rice University, 2014
Applied Ethics, Social and Political Philosophy
Interests: Social and political philosophy (esp. punishment and justice), ethics (esp. contractarianism), freedom and moral responsibility. My thesis will be an attempt to formulate a contractarian theory of punishment, including an examination of what kinds of punishment might be justified under such a theory. I also have strong interests in both the philosophy of time travel, and the philosophy of rock music.
