The Aristotelian Society presents:
Dr James Wilson (UCL) – Internal and External Validity in Thought Experiments
James Wilson integrates philosophy with other relevant disciplines, such as epidemiology, economics and political theory to explore conceptual and practical challenges in the sustainable and equitable improvement of human well-being. He focuses particularly on public health ethics, and the ownership and governance of ideas and information. He received his PhD from UCL in 2002, then held temporary lectureships in Philosophy at University of Roehampton (2002-3) and Birkbeck (2003-4), before becoming Lecturer in Ethics at the Keele University (2004-8). He has been at UCL since 2008, first as Lecturer in Philosophy and Health, and then as Senior Lecturer in Philosophy.
