J. Harrison Lee

J. Harrison Lee is a fourth-year PhD student in the department of philosophy at Baylor University. Prior to starting his PhD, he received a BA from UNC-Chapel Hill (2013), an MA from University College London (2014), and an MA from Georgia State University (2017), in each case majoring in philosophy. His dissertation focuses on the ethics of killing. It argues that intentions have a narrow scope and, thus, that even an absolute prohibition against intentional killing would fail to explain the wrongness of many lethal actions. It seeks further principles chip away at this explanatory task and examines applications to warfare and medicine.
