I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Bowling Green State University. My main areas of work are within political philosophy and ethics, though I have strong interests in philosophy of religion and political economy.
My current research focuses on the proper place of religious commitment in liberal politics and various facets of the public reason liberal political tradition. The friends and enemies of liberalism both often claim that liberalism is hostile to religious contributions to public life. An animating theme in my work is that this claim is deeply mistaken. I have written a book on the matter that I have tentatively titled Beyond Separation: Uniting Liberal Politics and Public Faith. Routledge will publish it next year. I’m looking for comments, so email me if you’re interested in reading a draft.
From here, you can learn more about me, view my CV or read a few of my publications. You can also watch me talk about my research with fellow philosopher Jason Brennan on Philosophy TV. Feel free to email me. I’m easy to reach at kevinvallier-at-gmail-dot-com.
