Dr Andreas Pantazatos
Andreas Pantazatos received his BA in Philosophy from the University of Athens. He went on to read an MA at Reading University and a PhD at Durham University where he currently lectures on a variety of modules at Durham's Philosophy Department. His research focuses on ethics (normative ethics and metaethics) and moral psychology. He is currently working on the distinction between thick and thin concepts and the relation between value pluralism and virtue ethics.
While he was reading for his PhD, he developed an interest in the ethics of archaeology. His research focuses on the codes of ethics of archaeology, the debate of ‘value' in archaeology and the role of stewardship in archaeological practice. He is currently working on a paper regarding the re-evaluation of stewardship and a project on the impracticality of the codes of ethics in archaeology.
