Nicolas Delon

Welcome! I'm a new Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Environmental Studies at New College of Florida in beautiful Sarasota.

I work mainly in ethics, and focus on connections between value theory and moral status, animals and the environment. I have interests in experimental philosophy, psychology, and how they bear on the descriptive and normative aspects of our relations to other entities, as well as environmental studies, animal behavior and cognition, legal, social and political philosophy, the philosophy of death, Bentham, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein.
