Laura Frances Callahan

211 Malloy



PhD - Rutgers University; BPhil - Oxford University

Research Interest

Ethics, Epistemology, Philosophy of Religion

Laura is interested in questions such as: How are we responsible for our beliefs – especially our moral and religious beliefs? What are the distinctive desiderata for such beliefs (know-how? understanding?), and what does forming these beliefs virtuously involve? How do social roles and interpersonal relationships shape these epistemic responsibilities? And how do such roles and relationships shape our ethical responsibilities? Laura received her PhD from Rutgers University in the spring of 2019 and her BPhil from Oxford University in 2015. She is a native Hoosier and received an undergraduate degree in philosophy and math from Indiana University Bloomington.
