Ben Laurence

I am Ben Laurence. I teach political philosophy at the University of Chicago. I work on big picture questions about the relation of political philosophy to agency and change. I also work on the philosophy of human rights, labor rights, racial justice, and Kant’s political philosophy. I am the author of the book Agents of Change: Political Philosophy in Practice. My work has appeared, among other places, in The Journal of Political Philosophy, Philosopher’s Imprint, and Philosophy and Phenomenological Research. I sit on the board of the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights and direct its undergraduate curriculum. I am deeply involved in the life of the center and its pedagogical mission to bring theory together with practice around pressing questions of human rights and global justice.
