Jeremy Reid

Jeremy Reid is a post-doctoral research associate. Jeremy researches the history of ethics and political philosophy, primarily in Greek & Roman philosophy. On the political side, he is interested in the development of constitutionalism, democratic theory, and the use of moral psychology and theories of character in political philosophy, particularly in non-ideal circumstances. On the ethical side, he has worked most on ancient theories of love, sex, and friendship. As somebody who is not yet a Sage, Reid is also interested more generally in how to progress towards virtue and what it means to have lower grades of virtue. Jeremy finds himself at his happiest working on Plato and the Stoics (who are both fun and probably right), though he also has major research and teaching interests in Aristotle, Cicero, Hobbes, and contemporary virtue ethics.
