Tarasenko-Struc Portrait.jpeg




Aleksy Tarasenko-Struc completed a PhD in Philosophy at Harvard University in Fall 2017. His primary areas of research are in ethics and social philosophy. He has serious interests in political philosophy and the philosophy of mind as well.

Aleksy's work is concerned with morally significant interpersonal relations - in particular, wronging, love, and mutual recognition. He is especially interested in understanding what the notion of recognizing someone as a person must be like to play a substantive role in standard forms of moral complaint and social critique - such as the complaint that one person is invisible to another, or the critique that one group fails to regard another as (fully) human.
