Christopher Robichaud, Lecturer in Ethics and Public Policy, received his doctorate in philosophy from MIT. He's taught at the Harvard Kennedy School since 2006. His work focuses on areas in moral philosophy, political philosophy, and social epistemology. Currently, his research interests include exploring the concept of atonement as it relates to public actors and governments, and examining the value that truth, knowledge, and understanding have in democracies. He is dedicated to bringing philosophical ideas to a wider audience, and pursues this goal by looking at issues in moral and political philosophy that arise in pop culture stories, especially superhero narratives. His articles can be found in the published and forthcoming volumes Superheroes and Philosophy, Supervillains and Philosophy, Batman and Philosophy, Iron Man and Philosophy, X-Men and Philosophy, Spider-Man and Philosophy, Superman and Philosophy, Watchmen and Philosophy, The Avengers and Philosophy, Heroes and Philosophy, True Blood and Philosophy, and Game of Thrones and Philosophy. He has previously taught philosophy courses at Texas A&M University, the University of Vermont in Burlington, and Tufts University.
