about me

I am Associate Professor and Chair of the Philosophy Department at Providence College. My research interests include the philosophy of punishment (esp. capital punishment and punishment and race), Kant’s practical philosophy, and Levinas. I am putting the finishing touches on a book informatively titled Against Capital Punishment (Oxford University Press, forthcoming). 

I have also taught at Harvard (in the College Writing Program), Cornell (as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Program on Ethics & Public Life, Sage School of Philosophy), and the Auburn (NY) Correctional Facility.

You can find me on PhilPapers and Academia.edu. Email me at byost1 symbol providence dot edu.
