Dr Emma Gordon
- Research Associate (Philosophy)
I received my PhD from the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Professor Duncan Pritchard. Prior to that, I completed an MSc at the University of Edinburgh and an MA in Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. To visit my personal website, click here.
My research interests mainly lie in epistemology and applied ethics. I'm currently working on projects in social epistemology, the philosophy of trust, bioethics (especially human enhancement technology), the philosophy of well-being, intellectual virtues & vices and philosophy of emotion. I am happy to supervise projects on any of these topics, as well as in mainstream epistemology and normative ethics.
My new book Human Enhancement and Well-Being is forthcoming with Routledge.
