Ramiel Tamras Portrait

Position Title
Graduate Student


I work primarily at the intersection of ethics, metaphysics, and the philosophy of language. The questions which interest me most have to do with the metaphysics of normativity, the semantics and pragmatics of normative language, the nature of practical reasons, and various issues in normative ethics. 

My dissertation, "Making Sense of Moral Indeterminacy," gives a comprehensive account of moral indeterminacy, ranging from its metaphysics to its practical implications.
