Sara J. Bernstein


I am Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Duke University.

I work mainly on the metaphysics of causation, and on questions at the intersection of causation and ethics. I also have interests in the metaphysics of time and time travel.

I am an at-large member of the board of officers of the American Philosophical Association, and welcome ideas about how to improve the APA and the profession.

I received my Ph.D in 2010 from the University of Arizona.

My graduate career had other temporal parts located at UNC-Chapel Hill, MIT and Australian National University, at which I am still a frequent visitor. I did my undergraduate work where fun goes to die.
