Nicholas Makins

I am a PhD student in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at LSE.

My research addresses questions about practical reason, metaethics, and decision theory. 

My PhD Thesis concerns the role of normative uncertainty in models of rational choice. I defend a set of claims about the ways in which our choices under normative uncertainty depend on the nature of normative judgements themselves. 

I am a co-organiser of LSE's Choice Group.

Here is a recent copy of my CV.
