Ian James Kidd
Department of Philosophy
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Philosophy at Durham University. My research focuses on a cluster of topics at the intersection of ethics, epistemology, and the philosophies of medicine, religion, and science; lately I am especially interested in the role of epistemic virtues in scientific enquiry, the nature of a religious life, scientism, and the moral and cognitive value of illness. In October 2012 I began a three year funded research project entitled Epistemic Humility.
Details of my teaching, research and other academic activities are available below.
In 2012-2013, I am lecturing on environmental ethics and the philosophy of religion.
For more information on my teaching and research, or for any other queries, please do email me.
