Office Location: 
Marx Hall, Room 308

David Sobel is Guttag Professor of Ethics and Political Philosophy at Syracuse University. Much of his work has focused on understanding the ways in which what one values shapes one’s well-being and practical reasons. Some of his papers on such topics are collected in his From Valuing to Value (OUP, 2017). Despite this research focus, he is strongly engaged by a great many topics in ethics and political philosophy. He is a founding co-editor of Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy and co-editor of the blog PEA Soup.  If he could have chosen his talents, he would be a stand-up comedian.
