Pilar Lopez-Cantero’s research chiefly focuses on personal relationships, specifically friendship and romantic love. Her work sits in the intersection between ethics, moral psychology and social philosophy (particularly feminist philosophy). She published several papers on the end of relationships in Philosophia and Ethical Theory of Moral Practice, and wrote several contributions to edited volumes and book reviews. She is also interested in political cosmopolitanism and the link between self-concept and autonomy.
