BRADFORD JH KIM

D.PHIL, PHILOSOPHY (UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD)


I work on ancient Western moral philosophy.

I am currently an Instructor (Full-Time) at Auburn University's Department of Philosophy. I earned my DPhil in Philosophy from Oxford ('18), my MSt (Distinction) in Ancient Philosophy from Oxford ('15), and my BA (Honors) in Philosophy (minors in Greek/Latin) from Swarthmore College ('14).

Here is a link to my CV. Please get in touch at bjk0018 at auburn dot edu.

RESEARCH



Publications:

"Aristotle on Friendship and the Lovable," forthcoming in the Journal of the History of Philosophy.

"When Aristotelian Virtuous Agents Acquire the Fine for Themselves, What are They Acquiring?," forthcoming in the British Journal for the History of Philosophy.

Dissertation: Aristotle on the Value of Friends

I argue that Aristotelian friendship is egoistic, not, as many modern commentators have held, non-egoistic. For a dissertation abstract, see my CV.
