Symposium on Murphy’s work published

December 17, 2008

A special symposium, “The Work of Jeffrie G. Murphy,” was recently published in the Summer/Fall 2008 edition of Criminal Justice Ethics.

In this symposium, three scholars comment on various aspects of Murphy’s work, and Murphy responds. The scholars commenting are: Carol Steiker, Howard J. and Katherine W. Aibel Professor of Law at Harvard Law School; Benjamin Zipursky, Professor of Law at Fordham Law School; and Jerome Neu, Professor of Humanities at Cowell College at the University of California, Santa Cruz. 

The symposium originally was a special session on Murphy’s work held earlier this year at meetings of The American Philosophical Association. The editor of Criminal Justice Ethics heard about the session and asked to publish a revised version of the session. 

Murphy is a Regents' Professor of Law at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, Philosophy & Religious Studies, and his primary teaching and research areas are philosophy of law and jurisprudence, criminal law, ethics and religion, moral philosophy (including moral psychology), philosophy in literature/law and literature, and Kant’s moral, political and legal philosophy.
