Tom Bailey studied Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Oxford and received his Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Warwick. After teaching at Warwick and the Open University, he moved to Italy, first as a researcher at the University of Pisa and now teaching at John Cabot University in Rome. He also taught for some years in the Center for Ethics and Global Politics at LUISS University and at the St. John’s University Rome Center. 

Prof. Bailey’s research focuses on ethics and political philosophy, and is currently divided among four projects. Two concern modern ethics, the first treating Nietzsche’s ethics and its critical relation to Kantian ethics, and the second the interpretation and defense of Kant’s ethics. The other projects focus on contemporary political philosophy, concerning debates over the place of religion in liberal democratic politics and the idea of “cosmopolitanism” in global politics.  

At John Cabot, Prof. Bailey teaches courses in political philosophy, ethics and business ethics, introductory, modern and contemporary philosophy, the philosophy of art, the philosophy of love, and humanities research methods. (See his syllabi here.) He also supervises the Think! philosophy club, helps direct the Interfaith Initiative, is an advisor to the Guarini Institute for Public Affairs, and translates poetry for the InVerse festival.
