Paul Tulipana

I lecture in Philosophy at the University of California, Riverside. I did my PhD at Stanford and a postdoc at UCLA. I also lectured for a year at the department of Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology at UCLA.

I mainly work on ethics and on the history of ethics. I'm especially interested in philosophy of Immanuel Kant, but I'm also actively interested other early modern and nineteenth century thinkers. I often find myself drawn to areas where ethical considerations interact with issues in metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophy of language.

My current research concerns Kant's argumentative methodology and his response to skepticism in the first and second Critiques, his views about practical forms of self-awareness, and his moral metaphysics and epistemology.
