Nicholas Buck teaches and writes broadly on matters of ethics, religion, and politics. His primary research interests lie at the intersection of religious studies and moral and political philosophy, attending especially to the ways in which religion shapes the ethical lives and political imaginaries of persons. He also has interests in ethical reasoning, social and political thought, comparative religious ethics, human rights, Christian ethics, and the philosophy of religion. His dissertation engaged the writings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, GWF Hegel, WEB Du Bois, and Martin Luther King Jr. in theorizing about the meaning and significance of political belonging, the value of democracy, and the role of religion in shaping political community.
