Name: Joseph Adams

PhD: Philosophy

Thesis Title: Moral Desert


Thesis Description:

My research is centred on a powerful moral intuition: it is morally important, other things being equal, to treat people as they deserve to be treated. My aim is to explore this intuition, developing an account both of the intrinsic nature of desert, and of desert’s wider moral significance.
