Joseph Carlsmith

NYU Department of Philosophy
PhD Student
New York City
I'm a PhD student in philosophy at NYU, interested mostly in ethics and political philosophy. Before coming to NYU, I did a BA at Yale and an MPhil at Oxford, both in philosophy. I'm also very interested in mindfulness meditation -- I've spent over a year of my life on silent meditation retreat, and I've been sitting daily since 2008. Talk to me about: sincerity, civic community, interpersonal experimentation, political uncertainty, and the ethics of criticizing each other.
