Dr. James S.J. Schwartz

Welcome to my personal homepage!  I am a full-time philosopher; a full-time space exploration and science fiction nerd; a part-time musician; and an amateur carpenter.  I am the author of The Value of Science in Space Exploration (Oxford University Press, 2020) and the editor (with Tony Milligan) of The Ethics of Space Exploration (Springer 2016).  Here you can find information about my scholarly work, as well as some of my public lectures on ethics of space exploration.
