Yvonne Tam


B.A., Colgate University

M.A., University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


Yvonne is interested in the structure of justification, moral theory, moral emotions, normativity, and practical reason. In particular, she spends a lot of time thinking about Kant’s theory of freedom and autonomy, the relational structure of the self, and the relationship between self-interest and the concern for others. She especially enjoys consulting the likes of Kant, Frege, and Nietzsche on these issues.
