Joe Cunningham

Welcome to my website. I am currently the Director of Studies and Lecturer in Philosophy at Jesus College, Oxford. Previously, I was a Departmental Lecturer in Ethics at Jesus; a Career Development Lecturer at Jesus; and the Director of Studies and Lecturer 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 research focuses primarily on the theory of reasons. I've defended and developed a disjunctive view of responding to reasons and I'm currently investigating what pay-offs this view has for debates over moral worth, responsibility, and rationality.
