Joe Cunningham

Welcome to my website. I am currently the Departmental Lecturer in Ethics at Jesus College, Oxford. Previously, I was the Career Development Lecturer at Jesus and also a Stipendiary Lecturer and Director of Studies in Philosophy at St Catherine's College, Oxford. Prior to coming to Oxford, I received a PhD from the University of Warwick in March 2016 and was an Early Career Fellow with Warwick's Institute of Advanced Study.

My primary research interest is in providing an account of what it is to perform an action or hold some attitude in response to reasons. I am particularly interested in defending and developing a disjunctive approach to that phenomenon, and in examining how, if at all, acting or holding an attitude for a reason might be connected to our capacity for mental agency.
