About the Author

Sabina Lovibond read Literae Humaniores (Classics) at Somerville College, Oxford, and began her postgraduate career at University College, London, where she gained a PhD in Philosophy. She returned to Somerville as holder of the Mary Somerville Research Fellowship (1979-82), and from 1982 to 2011 taught Philosophy at Worcester College, Oxford, where she held a Tutorial Fellowship from 1984. Her work has been mainly in ethics and feminist theory, but with some continuing input from the ancient philosophy background. The later philosophy of Wittgenstein has also been an enduring influence.
