Zina Ward

My interests lie in philosophy of cognitive science, moral psychology, social epistemology, and general philosophy of science. Recently I've been thinking about whether there are mathematical, non-causal explanations in neuroscience; how to naturalize philosophical accounts of weakness of will; the role of non-epistemic values in climate science; and nineteenth-century debates about the morality and usefulness of vivisection. I have a BA in Philosophy and in Economics from Williams College and an MPhil in HPS from Cambridge University.
