Mr. Radu Bumbăcea


After studying in Cambridge and London, I came to Leeds to do a PhD thesis on the ethical dimension of literature. I aim to provide a defence of the idea that there is something in our engagement with novel that is irreducibly important for our lives.

I am interested in ethics more broadly, but my approach to the subject is based on philosophy of mind (for instance, on emotions) and on seeing ethics as part of culture.

Research interests

aesthetics, philosophy of mind (mostly emotions), ethics
