Jonathan Way

I am a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Southampton, where I have taught since 2011. During the 18-19 academic year I was a Visiting Research Professor at the Murphy Institute at Tulane. I was previously a lecturer at the University of Stirling, a graduate student at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and an undergraduate at the University of Bristol. I spent Autumn 2014 as a Visiting Fellow at Harvard. I am an area editor for Ergo.

My CV is available here.

My research focuses on issues in ethics and epistemology, broadly construed. I am especially interested in issues to do with reasons, rationality, value, and normativity, across both epistemic and practical domains. I am currently writing a book, Getting Things Right: Reasons, Value, and Fittingness, with my colleague Conor McHugh, which is under contract with Oxford University Press. I am happy to supervise PhD students on topics falling within my areas of research interest.

With Conor McHugh and Daniel Whiting, I was a co-investigator on an AHRC funded project on Normativity: Epistemic and Practical. I am a founder member of the Southern Normativity Group and the European Normativity Network. I am one of the organisers of an annual Normativity Conference alternating between Southampton and Humboldt.

I also have a department webpage and a PhilPapers page.
