The Centre for Ethics presents Ethics at Noon

On the Genealogy of Nihilism

Andrew Sepielli is in the Department of Philosophy, University of Toronto-Mississauga. He works mainly in meta-ethics, normative ethics, and philosophical psychology, with side-interests in pragmatism, Nietzsche, and the philosophy of law. His current focus is a book project in "therapeutic metaethics", in which he uses philosophy to try to combat nihilism, anomie, and the like.
