Javier Caride is a PhD candidate in philosophy. His research centers around topics in metaethics, Aristotelian philosophy, and naturalism. He is particularly interested in questions about how we come to understand our natures as human beings and practical agents, and how this understanding might inform our ideas about ethics and well-being. At Harvard, he served as a teaching fellow for courses in ethics, philosophy of social protest, medieval philosophy, and philosophy of religion. He has also developed and led philosophy tutorials on contemporary neo-Aristotelian ethical theory, as well as on the intersection of empirical (especially evolutionary and neurological) research and ethics. Additionally, as a Bok Departmental Writing Fellow, he has worked with members of the Bok Center and the Harvard Writing Program to develop training materials for teaching fellows working with first-time philosophy students. He holds a BA in philosophy from Carleton College.
