Professor Nick Zangwill
I came to Durham in 2006. Before that I taught at Oxford University for a few years. Some time back, I taught at Glasgow University for 8 years.
I was have been Visiting Professor in Ohio State University (USA), Haifa University (Israel), Tokyo University (Japan), Nanzan University (Japan), Brown University (USA), and the University of Connecticut (USA).
I am interested in supervising doctoral students on quite a wide range of topics. My central research interests are metaethics, some areas of aesthetics, and some areas of the philosophy of mind. But other topics are possible. For example, I have a doctoral research student who researches rule-following matters and another researching for an interdisciplinary project on art-conservation ethics.
