Graduate Student; Ethics Discussion Group (EDGe) Organizer; Michigan-MIT Social Philosophy Workshop (M2SPW) 2023 organizer
Jason holds a B.A. in Philosophy & Sociology from the University of Oklahoma, and an M.A. in Philosophy from Georgia State University.
His philosophical interests are primarily in ethics, political philosophy, and philosophy of law. (In particular, he is focused on questions like punishment and its alternatives, moral repair, desert, rights theory, axiology and its alternatives, the relationship between morality and self-interest, and justice beyond the state.) Temperamentally, he enjoys discovering areas where ideas that first appear in conflict are actually mutually reinforcing.
In addition to all that, he enjoys fields like metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of religion -- but largely as a spectator. Other leisure activities include drinking coffee, listening to hardcore punk music, and engaging various kinds of weird fiction. He is also a recovering political activist.
Jason is also a 2022-2023 Adam Smith Fellow with the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.
