CEM members who are members of permanent academic staff include:
Daniel's research focuses on the nature of moral judgement and how it is possible for moral claims to be justified. His other research interests are connected either to other applications of the expressivist machinery involved in this metaethical project or to the conclusions in normative ethics which seem to follow from it.
Gerald has interests in practical reason and normativity, political philosophy (especially justice and liberty), the character and structure of consequentialism and non-consequentialism, moral luck, self-defence and war, and other life and death issues in applied ethics.
Pekka works primarily in metaethics, focusing on issues in moral semantics, moral metaphysics and moral epistemology. He has written extensively on thick concepts and the generalism-particularism debate. The main focus of his current research is normative explanation and dependence.
Jack's recent work focuses on a defense of a conventional approach to normativity which aims to account for the normativity of logic, epistemic normativity, and moral normativity alike. He has also written about expressivist accounts of moral judgment and language.
Wider CEM members with interests in moral or political philosophy who take part in seminars include Jamie Dow, Carl Fox, Matthew Kieran , Rob Lawlor, Christopher Megone, Joe Saunders, Georgia Testa, and Robbie Williams.
