Sarah Stroud’s area of research specialization is moral philosophy. Her work, which spans central areas of contemporary moral philosophy, gravitates toward foundational issues in moral psychology and moral theory and the intersection of such issues with metaethics and the philosophy of action. She has written well-known papers on such topics as partiality, moral demandingness and overridingness, lying, practical irrationality, and the moral implications and significance of personal relationships. She co-edited Weakness of Will and Practical Irrationality (Oxford, 2003) and the International Encyclopedia of Ethics (Hoboken, 2013), a nine-volume reference work which was awarded a Dartmouth Medal Honorable Mention by the American Library Association.
