Prof. Stephen Darwall, Ph.D.

Stephen Darwall is Andrew Downey Orrick Professor of Philosophy at Yale University and John Dewey Disinguished University Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Michigan.

His research focuses on the foundations of ethics, moral psychology, moral theory, and the history of these subjects, primarily in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. He is the author of Impartial Reason (Cornell, 1983), a theory of practical reason, of Welfare and Rational Care (Princeton, 2002), on the metaethics of well-being or welfare and of The Second-Person Standpoint (Harvard University Press, 2006) on the centrality of second-personal address and authority to moral obligation and responsibility.

Stephen Darwall is a Visiting Fellow in March 2019 upon invitation from Dr. Christine Bratu (CAS Junior Researcher in Residence 2018/19). On 19 March, they both will conduct a workshop on "Current Debates in Moral Philosophy".
