About Maurice Hamington

Maurice Hamington’s work endeavors to provoke a different way of thinking about ethics by integrating feminist care theory, American pragmatism, and philosophies of embodiment. In particular, he has written extensively about care ethics as a theory of being at the nexus of ontology, epistemology, and morality emphasizing care’s embodied and performative aspects. In additional to theoretical works of moral philosophy, Maurice has written on a variety of applied subjects including same-sex marriage, animal welfare, doctor-patient relations, migration, education, business, and politics.
Maurice serves as Executive Director of University Studies at Portland State University. University Studies is a twenty-year-old, award-winning, integrated program that serves as a nation-wide model for progressive, high-impact general education.
