Macy Salzberger, Assistant Professor of Philosophy

I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at San Francisco State University. In 2020, I received my Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I wrote a dissertation under the supervision of Susan Wolf. Before that, I received my B.A. in philosophy and history/history of science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Once upon a time, I was cool enough to work at First Avenue in Minneapolis.

My teaching and research interests are in ethics and social/political philosophy. I am especially interested in feminist philosophy, philosophy of education, moral psychology, and applied ethics. I also have developing interests in philosophy of law and the ethics of artificial intelligence.

At UNC, I received the Tanner Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. In addition to teaching, I am committed to public engagement and outreach. You can read some of my reflections on public philosophy here.

My C.V. can be found here.
