Dr. Rosalind Simson
Associate Professor of Philosophy
In recent years, Dr. Rosalind Simson has been working on issues at the intersection of philosophy, gender, and law — most notably, the Title IX athletic regulations and the morality of abortion. Her current research is on the scope of people’s moral duties to help others and the tension between obligations to needy people everywhere and duties to friends, family, and local community. She also enjoys teaching epistemology and metaphysics, philosophy of the arts, bioethics, environmental ethics, and INT 201 (Building Community).
