Benjamin J.B. Lipscomb, Professor of Philosophy (B.A., Calvin College, 1996; M.A., Ph.D., University of Notre Dame, 1999,2002), specializes in contemporary ethical theory, with side-interests in American agrarianism, biomedical ethics, the history of philosophy (particularly the history of ethics), legal interpretation, town planning, and Christian worship. His overarching concern, across all these areas, is with issues of character formation. Lipscomb recently co-edited and contributed to a collection on the Enlightenment philosopher Immanuel Kant, and is now working on a group biography of an important and closely connected quartet of twentieth-century ethicists: Elizabeth Anscombe, Philippa Foot, Mary Midgley, and Iris Murdoch. Lipscomb’s extra-curricular activities, over the past several years, include chairing the worship planning committee at his church, serving on the Allegany County Planning Board, and organizing Houghton College’s new Faculty Lecture Series. He and his family live in Fillmore.
