Andrew Jason Cohen is Professor of Philosophy and Founding Director of the Interdisciplinary Studies Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) at Georgia State University, which offers both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. He is the author of Toleration and Freedom from Harm: Liberalism Reconceived (Routledge, 2018) and Toleration (Polity, 2014) as well as articles in journals like Ethics, The Canadian Journal of Philosophy, and in new reference works like The International Encyclopedia of Ethics and The Cambridge Companion to Liberalism. Increasingly, he is looking at toleration (or the lack thereof) in our system of criminal law, in business ethics, and other fields of applied ethics as well as at issues relating to free speech and (especially) civil discourse. He is currently working on a book intended as an instruction manual for civil discourse. He blogs at radicalclassicalliberals.com; he previously blogged at bleedingheartlibertarians.com.
