About the Speaker

Justin D’Arms is Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Philosophy Department at Ohio State University. Professor D’Arms’s philosophical interests include Moral Theory, Metaethics, Reasons and Rationality, Philosophy of Emotion, and Evolutionary Theory. His research engages in different ways with questions about how facts about human nature and hypotheses about human evolution are relevant to normative questions about justice, morality, reasons, and values.

Professor D’Arms co-edited Moral Psychology and Human Agency: Philosophical Essays on the Science of Ethics (Oxford UP, 2014) with Dan Jacobson, and the two also have a monograph forthcoming with Oxford University Press, titled Rational Sentimentalism. Professor D’Arms’s articles have appeared in many prominent philosophical journals, including The Journal of Philosophy, Ethics, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, and Philosophical Studies.

Professor D’Arms is the recipient of grants and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Princeton University Center for Human Values, and the John Templeton Foundation. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Michigan in 1995.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), The Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
