Introducing C4E’s 2017-18 Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethics

This August, Aaron Ancell (Duke, Philosophy) will join C4E as our Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethics. At Duke, Aaron was affiliated with the Moral Attitudes and Decision-Making Lab (MAD Lab) and the Rethinking Regulation network, both housed in the Kenan Institute for Ethics. Aaron’s areas of speciality are political philosophy and ethics; his dissertation, “Public Unreason: Essays on Political Disagreement,” advances a framework for thinking about political disagreements that is informed by social epistemology and psychology. In 2017-18, he’ll teach ETH201H1 (Contemporary Moral Problems) and ETH230H1S (Morality in Cross-Cultural Perspective).
