Robert Audi

Robert Audi (born November 1941) is a philosopher whose major work has focused on epistemology, ethics—especially on Ethical intuitionism, and the theory of action. He is Professor of Philosophy and David E. Gallo Professor of Business Ethics at the University of Notre Dame. His 2005 book, "The Good in the Right", updates and strengthens Rossian intuitionism and develops the epistemology of ethics. He has also written important works of political philosophy, particularly on the relationship between church and state.

Audi earned his BA from Colgate University and his MA and PhD from University of Michigan. He taught briefly at the University of Texas at Austin, and for many years as the Charles J. Mach University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln before moving to Notre Dame. He has served as General Editor of the First Edition (1995) and Second Edition (1999) of "The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy". He has also served as the general editor for "Modern Readings in Epistemology", as well as for "Modern readings in Metaphysics".
