On behalf of honorethics.org, I’m pleased to announce that Shannon French has graciously accepted our invitation to join us as a contributor.

Although Shannon has published work on various subjects, she has written numerous papers and a book on military ethics, which in her work overlaps strongly with issues having to do with honor and associated virtues. I would direct readers especially to her The Code of the Warrior, which grew out of her popular courses on war ethics and military leadership while she taught at the U.S. Naval Academy.

Shannon is currently the director of the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence and Inamori Professor of Ethics at Case Western Reserve University. She received her bachelor’s degree in philosophy, classical studies and history from Trinity University in San Antonio in 1990. She went on to earn her Ph.D. in philosophy from Brown University before joining the Naval Academy faculty.
