Summary: Joe works on ethics and agency in Kant and the post-Kantian tradition. He divides his time at the centre between teaching applied ethics, and helping with e-learning.
Joe's research primarily focuses on ethics and agency in Kant and the post-Kantian tradition. He is currently working on several books: a new edition of the Groundwork with Robert Stern and Chris Bennett; a collection on media ethics with Carl Fox; and a book on well-being and economics with Paul Dalziel and his mum! Other interests include meta-ethics, and the philosophy of love.
Joe completed a PhD at the University of Sheffield, attempting a defence of Kant's Groundwork III. Before that, he undertook a BA and MA in Philosophy at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.
