B.A, Wheaton College
Ph.D., University of Madison, Wisconsin
Personal Statement on Philosophy:
Philosophy is everybody's business, because it is the attempt to explore the underlying assumptions of all areas of human thought and life. Not everyone systematically studies philosophy, but everyone depends on philosophical views and assumptions. Involving others in reflection about commitments is a source of deep joy for me.
Research & Teaching Interests:
Professor Bailey specializes in ethics and political philosophy, with particular interest in the foundations of liberal political theory. He teaches courses in ethics and political philosophy.
Professor Bailey is currently the Dennis M. Jones Distinguished Professor in the Humanities for the 2009-2011 school years.
