Paul Musso

PhD candidate in Philosophy


My research focuses on the historical and contemporary significance of Elizabeth Anscombe and Philippa Foot for ethics and metaethics. My research has both a historical and contemporary component. Historically, I am interested in the negative critiques that Anscombe and Foot raised against analytic moral philosophy in the first half of the twentieth century, and what we can learn from them. The contemporary side of my work focuses on articulating and defending Neo-Aristotelian approaches to normativity. 

I also spend a great deal of time researching, documenting, and writing on Elizabeth Anscombe's archive here at Penn (see website for more info).
