The honors thesis research of MMUF Fellow Christopher-Marcus Gibson was recently featured in the Huffington Post's Thesis Project blog, which provides a popular web forum for the academic work of college undergraduates. Christopher-Marcus' Thesis Project essay, "Can We Make Ethics Scientific?" draws upon Aristotle's logical and biological models of demonstrative explanation to explore the question of whether -- and how -- the development of a rigorous empirical science of ethics might be possible.
Christopher-Marcus, who recently graduated from Duke University, will enter a PhD program in philosophy at Princeton University in the fall of 2014. We wish him the best of luck in his graduate studies!
