Justin Neufeld

Justin Neufeld, PhD (candidate) in Religious Studies, McMaster University
Lecturer in Philosophy
Teaching area for business: business ethics

Justin Neufeld's academic interests concern how the human person has been understood by ancient, medieval, and modern writers as they have contemplated the question of justice, which is the question of what we owe others and what is owed to ourselves. Students in business will engage this history of reflection on justice in order to bring its resources to bear on the question of what constitutes good business today.
