Greetings! You've found my homepage. I'm David Killoren and I'm a philosopher. I teach at Coastal Carolina University, which is located just outside of Myrtle Beach, SC.
I did my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I defended my dissertation in May 2012, with Russ Shafer-Landau as my advisor. I'm now in the third year of a 3-year position as Ethics Fellow in the Jackson Family Center for Ethics & Values at Coastal Carolina University, where I work with Nils Rauhut and Amber Eckersley.
I'm the principal organizer of the Online Undergraduate Philosophy Conference, which is hosted at Philosophy TV, the website I founded with my UW friends John Basl, Jonathan Lang, and Brynn Welch.
I'm a huge fan of the Rocky Mountain Ethics Congress, which I try to attend every year. I also like the conferences put on by Marcus Arvan in connection with his group blog,
the Philosopher's Cocoon. And I think the Metaethics Workshop is a wonderful thing, although I have unfortunately been unable to attend in the past couple of years.
Here's my contribution to Christy Mag Uidhir's "100 Philosophers 100 Artworks 100 Words" series: an anti-iconoclastic icon.
Here's my contribution (with Derrick Murphy) to Eric Schwitzgebel's "Philosophical SF" series: a list of philosophically interesting episodes of the Twilight Zone.
As long as you are not one of my students, you are welcome to follow me on Facebook, where I like to talk about philosophy, politics, art, education, and so on.
