James (Jim) Sias
Associate Professor of Philosophy
Ph.D., University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
I specialize in ethics (meta- and normative) and moral psychology, but I also have interests in the philosophy of psychiatry, the philosophy of mind, epistemology, and aesthetics.
In 2016, I published a book about the concept of evil. I've also published papers about emotions and moral cognition, expressivism in ethics and the philosophy of language, Shaftesbury, and Hannah Arendt. I'm currently working on stuff related to mental illness, agency, and well-being. For more on my research, click here.
Outside of academia, I spend most of my time hanging out with my wife and our (four) kids. I also enjoy watching college football and basketball, drawing and painting, and reading science fiction.
