Malcolm Murray


Professor, Chair

BA, MA, PhD (Waterloo)

I study ethical theory. The focus is on the definitions, concepts, and justifications for moral talk. Specifically, I study contractarian arguments that pretend to ground moral motivation on a picture of enlightened self-interest. A large chunk of this justification veers into game theory.
