Jem Hilton received his MA in Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. His thesis attempted to reconstruct and orient G.E. Moore's Principia Ethica in terms of it's role in setting the agenda for early 20th century metaethical discourse and to place Moore's view of naturalism in dialogical context with John Dewey's alternative naturalist metaphysics. Prior to attending UW-M, Jem attended Northeastern Illinois University, where he received his BA in Philosophy. Jem's current interests are in historical and contemporary views in metaethics and, history of analytic philosophy, American Pragmatism, South and East Asian Philosophies, Autonomy, and issues in epistemology regarding authority, expertise and testimony. He teaches Ethics, Critical Thinking, and Introduction to Philosophy. Jem has also taught at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and currently teaches at the College of Lake County as well, but loves to be back teaching at his undergraduate Alma Mater.
