About me

Welcome! My name is Joseph Stenberg. I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at San José State University, teaching both in the Philosophy Program and the Humanities Honors Program.

My research focuses primarily on medieval ethics and late medieval ethical Aristotelianism, in particular. The first of my two central projects is a monograph, Aquinas and the Ethics of Happiness, which examines Aquinas's theory of happiness and that theory's connections to his ethics more broadly. My other major project is a translation of the first three books of John Buridan's Questions on the Ten Books of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics. Both projects are under contract at Cambridge University Press.

However, my research interests extend beyond medieval philosophy into other areas, such as contemporary philosophy of religion, modern philosophy, and ethics.
