Dr. Justin Moss joined the department as an adjunct professor in the Fall 2011 semester. He completed his PhD requirements at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) in December 2011. His dissertation research focused on the various methods that consequentialist moral philosophers use to deflate the demandingness objection to consequentialism, how those methods fail or succeed, and what lessons consequentialists should draw from those results. He has taught courses or has been a teaching assistant at UNL, the University of Idaho, Southeast Community College (Lincoln, NE), and the College of St. Mary (Lincoln, NE). He has also guest-taught a session of a course at Metropolitan Community College (Omaha, NE).
