Academic Year Adjunct Lecturer

Tristan Rogers has research and teaching interests in Social and Political Philosophy, Ethics (especially virtue ethics), and ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy. His first book, The Authority of Virtue: Institutions and Character in the Good Society, was published by Routledge in 2020. He is currently writing another book on the philosophical origins of conservative political thought, tentatively titled Conservatism Past and Present: A Philosophical Introduction (Routledge, under contract). A recent article from this project, titled “Stoic Conservatism,” appears in a recent special issue of Symposion (2022) on Stoicism and Contemporary Thought.

Before coming to Santa Clara University, Rogers was a Visiting Scholar in the Benson Center for the Study of Western Civilization at the University of Colorado Boulder. He lives in the South Bay area with his wife and two children. When not engaged in writing, teaching, or spending time with family, he enjoys writing and playing jazz music, occasionally performing as a vibraphonist.
