Casey Johnson Named IJPS Competition Finalist

March 09, 2020

Casey Johnson, assistant professor of philosophy in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, was named a finalist in the International Journal of Philosophical Studies (IJPS)’s 2019 Robert Papazian Essay Competition. Submissions are judged on their originality, engagement with topic, contribution to the field and quality of argument. The theme of the 2019 competition was “the ethics and politics of vulnerability.” Johnson’s entry, titled “Epistemic Vulnerability,” discussed people’s need to help others — not just out of moral obligation but also in cases having to do with inquiry and knowledge. She asserts that when people are vulnerable to others in this way, people have an epistemic obligation to help. Johnson’s essay will be published, along with the winning essay, in a special issue of IJPS in December.
