BRADFORD JH KIM

D.PHIL, PHILOSOPHY (UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD)


I work on ancient ethics, specifically Aristotle's theory of friendship.

I earned my DPhil in Philosophy from Oxford ('18), my MSt (Distinction) in Ancient Philosophy from Oxford ('15), and my BA (Honors) in Philosophy (minors in Greek/Latin) from Swarthmore College ('14). My current research is funded by a postdoctoral fellowship from the Philosophical Fellowship Fund (Oxford).

Here is a link to my CV. Please get in touch at bradfordjhkim at gmail dot com.

RESEARCH



Publications:

"Aristotle on Friendship and the Lovable," forthcoming in the Journal of the History of Philosophy.

Other Work:

I have one paper revised and resubmitted and four papers under review.

Dissertation: Aristotle on the Value of Friends

I argue that Aristotelian friendship is egoistic, not, as many modern commentators have held, non-egoistic. For a dissertation abstract, see my CV.

TEACHING



Lecturer: Self-Designed Series, "Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics on Friendship"

I delivered a series of lectures, largely based on material from my dissertation. This opportunity was awarded in a Faculty competition. Beginning with a broad overview of Aristotle's ethics and his theory of friendship, I then analyzed key arguments in the books on friendship.
