Wharton’s Legal Studies and Business Ethics Department Welcomes Brian Berkey of Stanford University

Brian Berkey, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Ethics in Society at Stanford University, will join the Legal Studies and Business Ethics Department at the Wharton School.

Brian is interested in a range of philosophical issues raised by climate change, including the grounds and extent of our collective mitigation obligations, whether individuals have potentially demanding obligations to reduce their personal greenhouse gas emissions, and the relationship between accounts of “climate justice” and broader theories of global and intergenerational justice. His article “Climate Change, Moral Intuitions, and Moral Demandingness” appeared in Philosophy and Public Issues in 2014.
