Chicago Moral Philosophy Project

The Chicago Moral Philosophy Project enhances the curriculum in moral philosophy for graduates and undergraduates and fosters productive and rigorous discussion about ethical topics within the Department of Philosophy and beyond. The project sponsors the visit of an esteemed scholar in moral philosophy to the University of Chicago’s Department of Philosophy each spring. The scholar teaches a graduate-undergraduate for-credit course, leads a faculty-doctoral student reading group, and provides special advising to students.
