Daniel Muñoz

I'm a 5th-year PhD student at MIT, where I study normative ethics. My other research interests include epistemology, metaphysics, and moral psychology.

My dissertation argues that we have the same basic moral rights against ourselves as against anyone else, and that these rights set the limits of morality's demands.

Thesis title: What We Owe to Ourselves: Essays on Rights and Supererogation

Thesis committee: Kieran Setiya & Tamar Schapiro (co-chairs), Caspar Hare.
