Professor Jo Wolff

Research Interests

I am currently working on the topic of social equality, an interest that dates back to a paper ‘Fairness, Respect and the Egalitarian Ethos’, published in 1998. This project incorporates work I have published on disability and on disadvantage (including a book Disadvantage, co-written with Avner de-Shalit, published in 2007). I have also worked on topics related to justice and health, including The Human Right to Health (2012) and on the relation between philosophy and public policy (Ethics and Public Policy, 2011). I have also written several student texts, including An Introduction to Political Philosophy (third edition 2016) Why Read Marx Today? (2002), and Robert Nozick (1991). Further details at: https://jonathanwolff.wordpress.com


I teach a second year module on Marx; a research seminar in Political Philosophy (for 2015-6 on C. Pateman and C. Mills Contract and Domination); and, for the first time in 2015-6, a new module on applied moral and political philosophy in which students work in teams to produce a joint report, as well as individual projects.
