Facundo RodríguezMetaethics, Political Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion
I am an MPhil. Philosophy student at the University of Cambridge. I am interested in metaethics, political philosophy and their history, especially in the works of Aristotle, Kant, Marx and Hobbes. I have a secondary interest in medieval philosophy and philosophy of religion. At Cambridge, I have worked on a defence of Kant’s theory of Love and on Francisco Suarez’s Theory of Natural Law and Obligation. I am currently working on my MPhil dissertation on apologies and Moral Particularism.
Before coming to Cambridge, I completed a BSc. Politics and Philosophy and an MSc. Political Theory at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). There, I wrote my undergraduate dissertation ‘Aquinas on Evil and the Will: A response to Mackie’ that is now published in New Blackfriars Journal. My Master’s dissertation, titled ‘Circularity in Christine Korsgaard’s Constitutivist Argument’, argued that Christine Koorsgaard’s Constitutivism fails to ground the normativity of moral demands.
