Gopal Sreenivasan
Crown University Distinguished Professor in Ethics

Gopal Sreenivasan (Ph.D. 1993, UC Berkeley) joined the Duke faculty in 2008.  His research interests cover a wide range of topics across the spectrum of moral and political philosophy. 

Sreenivasan’s recent book, Emotion and virtue (Princeton, 2020), makes original contributions in both moral psychology and the theory of virtue.  It will be the subject of symposia in Analytic Philosophy and Criminal Law and Philosophy (online first, and second); and has been reviewed in Analysis and Mind.
