Graham Bex-Priestley is a Lecturer in Applied Ethics at the Inter-disciplinary Applied Ethics Centre at the University of Leeds. He completed his PhD at the University of Sheffield. His research interests primarily fall in the realm of moral philosophy. His strongest expertise is in metaethics, which touches on issues in the philosophy of language, logic, psychology and metaphysics, as well as theories of practical disagreement. He’s very interested in consequentialism, decision theories and the relationship between the two. He also has interests in gender theory and free will, and continues to be frightened by the ever increasing threats brought on by climate change.
