Jennifer A. Baker is associate professor of philosophy at the College of Charleston. Baker's research interest is in virtue ethics, in particular its theoretical structure and application. She is at work applying contemporary behavioral science to the claims necessary to virtue ethics, as well as applying virtue ethics to issues such as policing, internet privacy, and sportsmanship. She has recently co-edited a collection of new essays for Oxford University Press titled Economics and the virtues: building a new moral foundation (2016). In this collection is her most recent attempt to defend the Stoic approach to economics. Other articles include, “Who’s afraid of a final end? The role of practical rationality in contemporary accounts of virtue”, “Virtue ethics and practical guidance”, and “Virtue and behavior”.
