Associate Professor

Ph.D., Vanderbilt University, 1986

Christopher Kulp is the author of The End of Epistemology (1992), and the editor of Realism/Antirealism and Epistemology (1997). His current research is centered on metaethics and moral epistemology, with a special emphasis on moral intuitionism and moral metaphysics. His recent book, Knowing Moral Truth: A Theory of Metaethics and Moral Knowledge (2017) argues that (i) there are moral truths and moral facts independent of what anyone judges to be the case; and (ii) we have genuine knowledge of many of them. His latest book, Metaphysics of Morality, is has just been published by Palgrave Macmillan (2019). It is an inquiry into the metaphysical foundations of morality, and develops a realist theory of moral truth, moral facts, and moral properties. He has also begun writing another book, which will be the third in a trilogy on metaethics and moral epistemology, tentatively entitled Varieties of Moral Knowledge. In fall 2019, he will be teaching his recently-developed Core Curriculum ethics course, PHIL 34: Ethics and Adulthood, and in winter, 2020, he will be teaching PHIL 128: Metaethics, an upper-division course in his area of current research and publication.
