Jake Zuehl

I am a postdoctoral fellow in David Enoch's "Liberalism Rekindled" project. I hold a Ph.D. in Philosophy from NYU, a Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University, and a B.A. in the College of Social Studies (roughly: PPE) from Wesleyan University. 

I work mainly in moral, political, and social philosophy. My dissertation at Princeton argued that democratic participation can be a form of autonomy. My dissertation at NYU defended a theory of the nature and moral significance of social status and social hierarchy. I have also published on comparability and incomparability in ethics, epistemology, and elsewhere. Here is my CV.
