Julia Markovits

Julia Markovits did her graduate work at Oxford and joined the MIT faculty in 2009, after spending three years as a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows. Her research focuses on ethics and, more specifically, on some questions concerning the nature of moral reasons. She has written about internalism about reasons for action and about what it is to do the right thing for the right reasons. Her dissertation, which provides an internalist defense of universally-shared moral reasons, is under contract with OUP. Julia also has research interests in the philosophy of law and in Kantian ethics.
