Jake Wojtowicz

My work concerns the accidental harms we cause, agent-regret and the theory of action that underpins it, and the role this emotion and these harms plan in our lives. I wrote my PhD at King's College, London, supervised by David Owens and Massimo Renzo, and was examined in September 2019 by Antony Duff and Ulrike Heuer. In the Autumn of 2016, I visited Cornell. I live in Rochester, NY.

I'm also interested in parts of the philosophy of law (especially John Gardner's work on reasons), ethics more broadly, the history of ethics (especially the British Moralists), the philosophy of sport, and epistemology.


As far as I know, there's only one famous Wojtowicz. If you want to know how to pronounce it, these people know better than I do. I'm happy to go by "Jake"
