Jason Grinnell, Associate Professor of Philosophy
Wednesday October 27th 5-6 PM
Dr. Grinnell is the Chair of the Philosophy Department and an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Buffalo State College. His research focuses on the role of character in professional and applied ethics, and on philosophical issues in education and curriculum. Hus work is frequently inter-disciplinary, and he have taught, presented, and published with colleagues from several other disciplines.
His doctoral dissertation was on the philosophy of biology, political philosophy, and race; it investigated the ways in which data from biology and the social sciences—particularly statistical arguments about the heritability of traits—are used in the service of particular social and political policies pertaining to race. Dr. Grinnell have branched out from this initial work, but the intersection of the philosophy of biology, ethics, and political philosophy remains a significant component in my research program.
