Gerald Lang teaches Philosophy at the University of Leeds, and received his training in Bristol and Oxford. He was the co-editor of Luck, Value, and Commitment: Themes from the Ethics of Bernard Williams (OUP 2012), along with Ulrike Heuer, and How We Fight: Ethics in War (OUP 2014), along with Helen Frowe. He has published on a large number of topics in moral and political philosophy: distributive justice, political liberty, consequentialism, fairness, life and death issues in reproductive ethics, well-being and death, self-defence, the ethics of war, and aspects of practical reason and metaethics. He is currently writing a monograph, Strokes of Luck, about the role of luck in normative ethics and justice, work on which has been partly funded by the Mind Association. His next major research project will be concerned with self-defence, war, and the foundations of deontology.

Final drafts of the papers - including discussion notes and exemplary graduate papers - are published in the Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society.
