Robert Simpson

I’ve been a lecturer in philosophy at Monash since July 2013, having previously been a graduate student and sessional tutor in philosophy at the University of Oxford (2009-13) and at Monash prior to that (2007-08). My research interests are primarily in social and political philosophy; they include: free speech, hate speech, the analysis of speech-harm, attributions of responsibility in law, the moral limits of the criminal law, the ethics of human enhancement, the epistemology of disagreement, and philosophical issues around religious conflict. My teaching at present is in human rights theory, the ethics of global conflict, and philosophy of language.



The Epistemology of Expertise and Humility

The cluster group will host a conference and reading group focusing on the epistemology of expertise and its relation to intellectual humility.
