Terence Cuneo

Associate Professor of Philosophy

Terence Cuneo, Associate Professor of Philosophy, received his B.A. from Yale University and his Ph.D. from Fordham University. Prior to coming to UVM, he taught at Seattle Pacific University and Calvin College, as well as held a post-doctoral fellowship at the Free University, Amsterdam.

Cuneo's research focuses primarily in the areas of moral philosophy and early modern philosophy. In moral philosophy, Cuneo has defended a version of moral realism or the claim that there are robustly objective moral truths. In early modern philosophy, his work has focused on the thought of the eighteenth century Scots philosopher Thomas Reid.

In addition to having published numerous articles, Cuneo has published four books, including The Cambridge Companion to Thomas Reid (Cambridge, 2004) and Foundations of Ethics: An Anthology (Blackwell, 2007). His most recent work, The Normative Web: An Argument for Moral Realism, will be published by Oxford University Press in 2007
