  • Dr Benedict Rumbold

    Moral and political philosophy.My research is principally in practical reasoning, ethics and political philosophy, as well as in seventeenth century philosophy, particularly that of Descartes, Spinoza and Hobbes.In recent years I have written articles on a range of issues, investigating moral and political problems at varying levels of abstraction: rights' conclusiveness in moral reasoning and judgement; the right to privacy; the compossibility of human rights; distributive justice in the allocation of health resources; what, if anything, makes health care 'special'; biomedical moral enhancement.My current research considers questions around universalizability and the ideal worlds problem, as well as the normative significance of choices.
