All members of the department are actively engaged in research projects related to their areas of expertise. Their outside publishing and professional activities add an important dimension to in-class teaching. Philosophy faculty regularly teach upper-level courses directly related to their research interests. For example, in recent years faculty have held seminars on the development of modern moral philosophy, the moral and political philosophy of David Hume, and the later work of Ludwig Wittgenstein.
