Rebecca Bamford

Associate Professor of Philosophy

Rebecca Bamford

I am Associate Professor of Philosophy at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT.

I work across the history of European philosophy, ethics, bioethics, philosophy of mind, science, and technology, social & political philosophy, and African philosophy. My research and teaching interests focus on problems that arise at the intersection of ethics, medicine, and the sciences. I explicitly work to combine historical with contemporary perspectives when responding to philosophical problems.

My book Nietzsche’s Free Spirit Philosophy was published in 2015, and my research has also appeared in the American Journal of Bioethics, AJOB-Neuroscience, the Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics, the Journal of Value Inquiry, the South African Journal of Philosophy, and the Journal of Nietzsche Studies, as well in multiple edited collections.

I am also Adjunct Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Fort Hare in South Africa.

In Spring 2017, I was Visiting Associate Professor of Philosophy at Hunter CollegeCUNY.
