Biography

Jacqueline Taylor has broad philosophical interests that are reflected in the courses she teaches (see below). Her research has focused on David Hume and the eighteenth century, and her book, Reflecting Subjects: Passion, Sympathy and Society in Hume’s Philosophy appeared in 2015 (Oxford University Press). She is currently working on an edited volume on Hume’s later moral philosophy, and beginning two new research projects, one on eighteenth century women intellectuals, and one on character types (17th through 19th centuries). She also publishes in contemporary moral psychology, and all her work is informed by feminist thought.
