About Matthew Hoffman

I graduated from Stetson University in 2011 with a dual major in Philosophy and French, then completed an M.A. in the History of Philosophy at King’s College London in 2012, and an MSc.R. in Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh in 2018. Along the way I received a Certificate in Bioethics from Florida State University before transferring to Edinburgh. I am interested in the normative aspects of our daily lives, which finds me working across subfields in ethics, practical ethics, and epistemology. I also have an interest in philosophical questions involving interpersonal relationships, and for the past few years have presented at the Popular Culture Association’s romance studies division.
