לוגו אוניברסיטה.png

I am a professor of philosophy at the University of Haifa, Israel, and served as head of department between 2017 and 2022. My areas of specialization are ethics, political and legal philosophy, and Jewish philosophy. Between 2016-2018 I served as chair of the Israeli Philosophical Association.


I am also a senior fellow at the Israel Democracy Institute and a former director of its program on Human Rights and Judaism for excellent PhD candidates. 

My recent books are War by Agreement: A Contractarian Ethics of War (Oxford University Press, 2019, with Yitzhak Benbaji), and State and Religion in Israel: A Philosophical-Legal Inquiry (Cambridge University Press, 2019, with Gideon Sapir).  

I'll be on sabbatical in the academic year 2022-2023, visiting The Centre for the Experimental-Philosophical Study of Discrimination in Aarhus from mid-October to mid-November, The Center for International Studies at Science PO, Paris, in February-March, and The Institute for Advanced Study in Bad Homburg, Germany, from May 1st through mid-July.
