Andrew Shortridge

I am a graduate student in the
Sage School of Philosophy, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.  I started my studies at Cornell in 2008. I am writing a dissertation, under the supervision of Tad Brennan, about the Stoic conception of moral rules.

Prior to this, I completed both a BA (Hons.) and an MA in the School of Philosophy and Bioethics, Monash University, Australia. I wrote my MA thesis on the ethical theories of the Greek Sophists; I was supervised by Dirk Baltzly, Michael Janover, and Daniel Russell.

My main interest is ancient philosophy. I am also interested in normative and applied ethics, and the history of ethics. I am presently working on papers on Callicles, on the Protagoras, and on Epicurean friendship.

I am currently living in Melbourne, Australia, while I write my dissertation.
