Gunnar Babcock

Postdoctoral Associate in Biology, Duke University, Ph.D. in Philosophy, University at Albany, SUNY.

Gunnar’s research is primarily in the philosophy of biology and his other work considers developments in synthetic biology, biological concepts like bio-indeficiency, and other areas of empirical research to determine how these alter the metaphysical underpinnings of various concepts like reproduction, species, and lineages. His broader philosophical interests extend to the history and philosophy of science, environmental ethics, and ancient philosophy.

Before his academic endeavors, he managed a non-profit domestication project in Alaska aimed at creating a sustainable form of northern agriculture. As well as teaching at BEC Hudson Valley, Gunnar also teaches in the Division of Social Studies at Bard College at Simon’s Rock.
