Christopher Belshaw is an Honorary Associate in Philosophy at the Open University and York University. His research covers diverse topics in the theoretical side of applied ethics - questions of the value of death and the nature of a person as well as that of animals.
Christopher studied philosophy at the University of York, and later at the University of California, Santa Barbara and has gone on to teach at both. An early interest in Derek Parfit’s Reasons and Persons led Christopher away from his early interest in Humean scepticism towards an interconnected range of contemporary philosophical problems in ethics.
His books include 10 Good Questions about Life and Death, Environmental Philosophy, and his most recent book, The Value and Meaning of Life, which will be published next month.
