Julian Friedland

Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Global Social Responsibility, Metropolitan State University of Denver

I am a philosopher currently most interested in business applications of normative ethics including social impact strategy and the psychology of moral reasoning, particularly motivational alternatives to economic incentives and new means by which virtues may be instilled through management and AI design. I also have a longstanding interest in the later Wittgenstein and how his approach sheds light on contemporary issues in social science and analytic and continental philosophy. My work has appeared in a range of books and international journals including MIT Sloan Management Review, the Journal of Business Ethics, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, and Philosophical Investigations. I have also written for national magazines and newsprint including the New York Times, the Chronicle of Higher Education, the Irish Times. and the Conversation.
