Gopal Sreenivasan (Ph.D. 1993, UC Berkeley) joined the Duke faculty in 2008. His primary research interests are in moral and political philosophy.
Sreenivasan is the author of Emotion and virtue (2020), which is being published later this fall by Princeton University Press. This book makes original contributions in both moral psychology and the theory of virtue.
In addition to these topics, he has worked extensively on rights and human rights, where his recent publications include:
- "Whither and whether with the formative aim thesis," Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law 52(5) (2019): 1331-1357.
- Review of M. Gilbert, RIGHTS AND DEMANDS (Oxford, 2018). Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews (2019).
He has also worked extensively in bioethics, where his recent publications include:
- "Injustice and inequalities in health," Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Politics (2020).
- "What is adequate understanding?," American Journal of Bioethics 19(5) (2019): 38-40.
