About Anthony Cunningham

Good moral philosophy should notice something important and meaningful about human life and character. My work aims at noticing such things, especially the sorts of things that traditional moral philosophy tends to pass over. I'm particularly interested in how literature and film can capture significant elements of the human experience, ones that ethical theories either miss or twist in an effort to make things fit the theory. Ultimately, good moral philosophers aim at being people on whom nothing is lost.
