About Jeff Johnson

I teach a wide range of courses, including Ethics, Food Ethics, Environmental Ethics, Asian Philosophy, Biomedical Ethics, Logic, and interdisciplinary courses with colleagues on topics like Animal Ethics, Buddhist Philosophy, and Effective Altruism. My aim in teaching is to help students see how philosophy connects with their lives outside the classroom.

Lately I've been working on issues in practical ethics, mostly to do with the ethics of eating animals, food ethics more broadly, environmental ethics, and effective altruism. In my thinking I work to attend to contexts in which we make use of moral terms as a way to bring out details I worry we often overlook in engaging with ethical issues.

Here's a link to my personal website.
