Lecturer at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government
Christopher Robichaud is Lecturer in Ethics and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. He received his doctorate in philosophy from MIT. His work focuses on areas in ethics, political philosophy, and social epistemology. Dr. Robichaud has been a member of the faculty since 2006. He also teaches at the Harvard Extension School and the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Previously, he has taught philosophy courses at Texas A&M University, the University of Vermont in Burlington, and Tufts University.
Currently, his research interests include exploring what a “post-truth” age of politics might be, and what, if anything, can be said for or against such an age. He is also interested in examining what kind of intellectual virtue is captured by the idea of healthy skepticism, and what place such a virtue has within a democratic society.
