Ariel Zylberman‘s research is in ethics, legal and political philosophy, and Immanuel Kant, with a central focus on relational normativity, i.e. norms that link one agent to another. With this relational focus, he wrote about rights and human rights, dignity, moral obligation, practical authority, lying, and metaethical constitutivism. His current project seeks to locate the metaphysical foundations of ethics in a relational account of action.
