Biography

Andrew Jason (“AJ”) Cohen has published articles in Ethics, The Canadian Journal of Philosophy, The Southern Journal of Philosophy, The American Philosophical Quarterly, The Pacific Philosophical Quarterly, The Journal of Ethics, and elsewhere. Much of his time is spent thinking and writing about toleration; his first book, Toleration was published in 2014 on Polity Press’s “Key Concepts” series. He is working on a second book on the same topic and also does work with issues taking the individual agent as a source of normativity, individualism and communitarianism, the nature of exchange, and the nature and morality of waste. He also blogs at http://www.bleedingheartlibertarians.com/.
