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 whole spectrum of moral and political philosophy. 

Hot off the press, his new book Emotion and virtue  (Princeton, 2020) makes original contributions in both moral psychology and the theory of virtue.

In 2020-21, Sreenivasan is on sabbatical in Oxford, where he is a visiting fellow at All Souls College. See below the fold for other recent publications, as well as some videos.
