Interview with Tim Scanlon
T.M. Scanlon is Alford Professor of Natural Religion, Moral Philosophy, and Civil Polity. He received his B.A. from Princeton in 1962 and his Ph.D. from Harvard. In between, he studied for a year at Oxford as a Fulbright Fellow. He taught at Princeton from 1966 before coming to Harvard in 1984.
Professor Scanlon's dissertation and some of his first papers were in mathematical logic, but the bulk of his teaching and writing has been in moral and political philosophy. He has published papers on freedom of expression, the nature of rights, conceptions of welfare, and theories of justice, as well as on foundational questions in moral theory.
He was invited at EHESS on the 13th November 2017 for a one-day long discussion of his manuscript "Why does Inequality Matter?" and on the 14th November he participated in the CESPRA seminar on Normative political philosophy.
Interview conducted by Luc Foisneau (CNRS director of research) with the collaboration of Véronique Munoz-Dardé (UCL/Berkeley) after the seminar given by Tim Scanlon on « Contractualism and justification » that was the first session of the seminar series on Normative political philosophy (EHESS).
