Professor Scott Wisor focuses his teaching and research on ethics and international affairs. His forthcoming book is The Ethics of Global Poverty: An Introduction (Routledge). Wisor received his Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Colorado at Boulder and his B.A. in Philosophy and History from Washington University in St. Louis.
Wisor encourages students to write frequently and to subject their ideas to regular critical examination. He believes Minerva's small, interactive classrooms help students to analyze and evaluate arguments, improving their critical thinking skills. Professor Wisor teaches the Morality and Justice Core Course and the Creating Ethical Political and Social Systems Concentration Course.
