Philosophy in the News

Samuel Duncan will join us as a full time lecturer next year, AY2013-14

The Philosophy Department is pleased to announce that Samuel Duncan will join us as a full time lecturer next year, AY2013-14. Sam replaces Lisa Hicks, who is leaving us for a position at Stanford. Sam earned an MA in Humanities at Chicago and his PhD in Philosophy at Virginia (2011) with a dissertation titled "Kant on Freedom, Reason and Moral Evil." Sam spent AY2008-9 in Germany as a Fulbright Scholar at Eberhard-Karls University in Tubingen. In addition to teaching at UVA, Sam has also taught at James Madison University. Sam has published scholarly essays in the British Journal for the History of Philosophy, The Southern Journal of Philosophy, and Social Theory and Practice. He works mainly on Kant and in ethics, but his interests and teaching competence extend to the history of modern philosophy (to include German Idealism), philosophy of religion, bioethics and political philosophy. Please join others in welcoming Sam to the Department.
