On behalf of honorethics.org, I am pleased to welcome Ryan Rhodes as a contributor.

Ryan just completed his Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of Oklahoma, where he wrote a dissertation on honor entitled Heroes Great and Small. Ryan was a speaker at 36th Annual Midwest Philosophy Colloquium’s “Honor and Ethics Mini-Conference,” where he presented a very well received paper entitled “Honor and the Moral Value of Reputation.” Apart from honor, Ryan writes about the use of fiction in philosophical illumination and situationist challenges to virtue ethics.
