Dr. Golden received his BA in Philosophy at the University of Virginia in 2003, minoring in Religious Studies, and earned his PhD in Philosophy at Georgetown in 2012. He believes that teaching is the privilege of being entrusted with another person’s intellectual and ethical development. He tries to honor it by fostering rigorous, inclusive dialogue in the classroom that promotes responsible citizenship beyond it.
Dr. Golden’s research explores the normative and psychological dimensions of agency, the character and limits of subjectivity, and the place of conflict in human affairs. His latest work examines commitment and citizenship by investigating virtues like civility, humility, integrity, and justice.
