Justin Tiwald is a professor of philosophy at San Francisco State University. He works on Chinese philosophy broadly construed, but has largely focused on Confucian, Daoist, and neo-Confucian accounts of moral psychology, well-being, and political authority, as well as the significance of Confucian views for virtue ethics, moral epistemology, and individual and human rights. He is also a translator of historical Chinese texts and series co-editor (with Eric L. Hutton) of Oxford Chinese Thought.  At Princeton, he will be working on a project that explores and develops competing Confucian views about moral expertise and moral self-reliance or autonomy.
