Douglass Reed


Doug Reed specializes in Ancient Western Philosophy, with a focus on ethics in Plato and Aristotle. In his work he tries to uncover insights about virtue and human flourishing in ancient texts that can help us think about ethical questions that remain with us today. In addition to Ancient Western Philosophy, he has interests in Ethics and in the History of Philosophy more generally.
