Jeremy Sorgen

Doctoral student of religious studies at the University of Virginia

Jeremy Sorgen is a fourth-year doctoral student of religious studies at the University of Virginia. His research uses phenomenology, pragmatism, and social theory to rethink moral anthropologies operative in philosophical and religious ethics. His dissertation conceives the field of environmental ethics as a community of scholar-practitioners developing philosophical competencies in face of impending environmental crisis. He proposes and develops a moral anthropology to sustain strategic efforts to make environmental ethics more adequate to the contemporary problems it seeks to address.
