In this symposium, three scholars comment on various aspects of Murphy’s work, and Murphy responds. The scholars commenting are: Carol Steiker, Howard J. and Katherine W. Aibel Professor of Law at Harvard Law School; Benjamin Zipursky, Professor of Law at Fordham Law School; and Jerome Neu, Professor of Humanities at Cowell College at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
The symposium originally was a special session on Murphy’s work held earlier this year at meetings of The American Philosophical Association. The editor of Criminal Justice Ethics heard about the session and asked to publish a revised version of the session.
Murphy is a Regents' Professor of Law, Philosophy & Religious Studies, and his primary teaching and research areas are philosophy of law and jurisprudence, criminal law, ethics and religion, moral philosophy (including moral psychology), philosophy in literature/law and literature, and Kant’s moral, political and legal philosophy.
