Derick Hughes

I'm a doctoral candidate in philosophy at the University of Colorado Boulder. I'm prepared to defend my dissertation, Demystifying Modesty and Humility, under the supervision of Iskra Fileva.

My teaching and research are interdisciplinary and fall mostly in ethics and moral psychology, but I mainly work on virtue theory and moral character. (See my amazing paper - if I may say so myself - on humility's paradoxes.)
