Dr. Hrishikesh Joshi works on issues at the intersection of philosophy, politics, and economics (PPE). He is interested in distributive justice, public choice theory, and the moral and epistemic upshots of partisanship and political polarization. Currently, he is working on a book project that applies PPE tools to analyze the ethics of speaking one’s mind. Joshi also works in ethical theory and metaethics, particularly on moral worth, personhood, and the sources of normativity. Dr. Joshi is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Bowling Green State University. In this video, Dr. Joshi discusses the “epistemic commons,” which is the concept that what we know is intimately connected to which ideas are alive within our community.
