Sarah Stroud joined the department in 2018 as Professor and Director of the Parr Center for Ethics. She works across central areas of moral philosophy but is especially interested in foundational issues in moral theory and moral psychology and the intersection of such issues with metaethics, epistemology, and the philosophy of action. She has published papers on such topics as partiality, moral demandingness and overridingness, lying and testimony, practical irrationality, and the moral implications and significance of personal relationships. Her book with Daniel Muñoz (UNC), Ethical Theory: 50 Puzzles, Paradoxes, and Thought Experiments, is forthcoming with Routledge, and, with co-editor Monika Betzler (LMU Munich), she is currently preparing a Handbook of the Philosophy of Personal Relationships for OUP. Previously, she co-edited Weakness of Will and Practical Irrationality (OUP, 2003) and the International Encyclopedia of Ethics (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013).
