Tanner Hammond


I'm currently a lecturer at Boston University, where I've been teaching since 2015. I teach a wide range of subjects, including History of Modern Philosophy, Ethical Theory, Formal Logic, and a number of interdisciplinary topics bridging Applied Ethics and Social and Political Thought, including Philosophy of Gender and Sexuality, Environmental Philosophy, and Bioethics, among others.

If you're thinking about taking a course with me, you should know that my approach to teaching is motivated by the idea that learning is, at its best, a social enterprise. To that end, class time will emphasize collaborative problem solving, not passive information transmission. We'll all come to class to practice our understanding of the material, not to receive it.
