Alyssa Luboff earned her Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in June 2014 with a dissertation entitled, “On the Ground: Opening a Coherent Space for the Insights of Cultural Relativism.”  Her work lies at the intersection of philosophy and anthropology, examining the ways in which the diversity of practices and beliefs that we find across peoples of different places and times interacts with traditional philosophical questions, such as what we can know and how we should act in the world.  She draws on philosophical and anthropological texts, as well as on her own experience living and working in the Ecuadorian Chocó rainforest.  Her areas of interest include social and political philosophy, philosophy of science and technology, epistemology and metaphysics, ethics, environmental philosophy, feminist philosophy, critical theory, and history of philosophy.
