Philip Yaure is an assistant professor of philosophy at Virginia Tech. He completed his PhD in philosophy at Columbia University.
Yaure works in social and political philosophy and anti-racist critical theory. His research addresses topics including citizenship, political judgment and expertise, resistance, oppression, and the nature of political community. He engages with these topics through the history of Black political thought in the US, focusing on the antebellum period.
Yaure also has substantial research interests in early modern philosophy, especially on the role of humility in the epistemology of 17th century thinkers Margaret Cavendish and John Locke.
The Tocqueville Lecture Series at Jacksonville State University invites scholars, professionals, and civic leaders to present on the ideas of liberty and equality, as they relate to other concepts important in the founding and continuation of American government.
