Joseph Brownsberger

Yale University, BS

Prior to coming to Notre Dame, I received a B.S. in Physics and Philosophy from Yale University and spent two years working in the legal department of the Knights of Columbus in New Haven, CT. I am interested in examining what a human being is and what that entails for how human beings act and ought to act. In particular, I focus on Aristotelian approaches to these problems, and the role of practical reasoning in human action. Starting in fall 2024, I will be in a JD/PhD program with the Law School and the Department of Philosophy.
