Professor Jaworska comes to UCR from Stanford University, where she taught courses on Ethical Theory, Moral Psychology, and Medical Ethics, and was part of the Program in Ethics in Society. Earlier she worked in the Department of Clinical Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health. Her current project, entitled “Ethical Dilemmas at the Margins of Agency,” concerns the ethics of treatment of individuals whose status as persons is thought to be compromised or uncertain, such as Alzheimer’s patients, addicts, psychopaths, and young children. It is part of a larger project on the nature of value and the moral psychology of valuing. Professor Jaworska's recent research has been published in journals including Philosophy and Public Affairs, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, and Ethics.
