Research at St Andrews

Nick Allen


Research overview

Supervisors: Kevin Scharp, Natalie Ashton, Justin Snedegar

Key areas of study: Meta-ethics, Feminist Philosophy, Philosophy of Language, Epistemology

My PhD research is on the intersection between Feminist Epsitemology and Meta-ethics. More specifically, I suspect that many of the issues found in mainstream epistemology, which are discussed by feminist epistemologists, may also occur in mainstream meta-ethics (or at least analogous problems). I hope to employ the lessons of feminist epistemology, in combination with existing feminist meta-ethical research, in order to create a feminist critical account of mainstream meta-ethics along these lines.

Organisations: I am a postgraduate member of Arché and CEPPA, and a co-founder of the St Andrews Feminist Philosophy reading group with Lara Jost and Emilia Wilson.

Teaching (PhD tutor): PY1011 Moral and Political Controversies (2019)

                                 PY2013: Moral and Aesthetic Value (2020) 

Other: I have an interest in Rambling, and I am also an Assistant Warden at St Regulus Hall.
