Joe Horton

I am a lecturer in philosophy at University College London. I work mainly on issues in ethics and political philosophy, but I am also interested in rationality and epistemology. My recent work focuses on questions about interpersonal aggregation, suboptimal supererogation, and the creation of new lives.
