Don Loeb has been a professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Vermont since 1991. Professor Loeb's research focuses on metaethical issues such as the debate over moral realism, the methodology of moral reasoning, the function of moral language, and the nature of the good. He regularly teaches a seminar on contemporary approaches to these issues, courses in jurisprudence and political philosophy, and a problems-oriented introductory class (with an emphasis on ethics, philosophy of religion and epistemology).
