Welcome to Iwao Hirose's Research Page

I am associate professor at McGill. I came to Montreal in 2007. Before that, I had worked as research fellow at University College, Oxford; Harvard University; and Melbourne University. I am lucky enough to have visiting posts at lovely places such as: Universite Catholique de Louvain; University of Stockholm; University of Tokyo; St Anne's College, Oxford; New York University; Fondation Brocher; College d'Etudes Mondiales, Paris; Waseda University; and Corpus Christi College, Oxford. In May and June 2015, I will be visiting Hebrew University of Jerusalem as a Lady Davis visiting professor.

The area of my research is moral philosophy. More specifically, I work on axiology and its applicaitons to public policy.

I recently published three monographs: Moral Aggregation (Oxford University Press, 2015); Egalitarianism (Routledge, 2015); and The Ethics of Health Care Rationing (co-authored with Greg Bognar, Routledge, 2014). I also edited two volumes: The Oxford Handbook of Value Theory (Oxford University Press, 2015) with Jonas Olson; and Weighing and Reasoning: Themes from the Philosophy of John Broome (Oxford University Press, 2015) with Andrew Reisner.
