Welcome to my website! I'm Rosalind Chaplin, a PhD candidate at UC, San Diego. Beginning in September of 2021, I will be a Bersoff fellow at NYU. In July of 2022, I will become an Assistant Professor at UNC Chapel Hill. I have wide-ranging interests in Kant, early modern philosophy, and contemporary ethics and moral psychology.
In my historical research, my projects focus primarily on Kant’s idealism, disputes about the infinite and the indeterminate, and debates in early modern metaphysics and philosophy of mind. In my research in ethics and moral psychology, I focus on the moral emotions, the role of reactive attitudes in our responsibility practices, and the significance of close personal relationships for a compelling account of moral responsibility and our normative practices more generally. See my research page for more information about my work.
In the 2019/2020 academic year, I was a visiting researcher at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. In the 2017/2018 academic year, I was Co-Director of UCSD's Summer Program for Women in Philosophy. I continue to serve on the Advisory Board. See here for more information about our program.
