I’ve been a faculty member at the Hebrew U – on a joint appointment in law and philosophy – since 2003.

I work primarily in moral, legal, and political philosophy.

In moral philosophy, much of my work has been in metaethics, where I defend a fairly robust objectivist, realist view about morality and about normativity more generally. According to this view, there are moral (and other normative) facts that do not constitutively depend on us, that we discover rather than create or construct, and that are irreducible to run-of-the-mill natural facts. 

In the philosophy of law I sometimes voice skepticism about the more conceptual parts of the discussion about the nature of law, and I take part mostly in normative discussions about law, such as questions about the right status of statistical evidence, or about the role of luck in morality and law

In political philosophy I develop and defend a comprehensive liberal view – one that does not aspire to the kind of neutrality Rawls’s “Political Liberalism” aspires to. I criticize such Rawlsian views, and I try to accommodate, within liberalism, insights more commonly found among critics of liberalism.

In the faculty of law I usually teach jurisprudence (usually, the part that is really just intro to moral and political philosophy), and sometimes a workshop or seminar at the intersection of law and philosophy. In the philosophy department I usually teach the first-year course “Central Problems in Philosophy”, and various seminars (mostly in metaethics and in political philosophy).

Roni Factor is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Criminology, Faculty of Law, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research brings an interdisciplinary perspective to the question of how the macro-level social context influences individuals’ antisocial and criminal behaviors. In studying these issues, he employs cutting-edge quantitative methods, using a variety of different types of data and research designs. His research so far has focused on three main areas. In the first, he studies how the macro social context and people’s position in society affects high-risk and criminal behavior, with a particular focus on traffic violations and road traffic crashes. In the second, he explores community–police relations and the legitimacy of law-enforcement institutions. In the third, he asks whether there is racial or ethnic bias in the work of law-enforcement institutions and develop new tools to measure it.
