Étienne Brown is a Postdoctoral Fellow in moral and political philosophy whose research is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). His current research project "Democracy and Deceit: Rethinking Collective Decision-Making in the Era of Misinformation" explores the impact of misinformation on the civic life of liberal democracies and evaluates potential remedies against its nocuous effects on the mental environment of individuals. It will be carried out at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics (2018-2019) and the Center for Ethics at the University of Toronto (2019-2020). In addition to his work in political epistemology and in democratic theory, Étienne is interested in the ethics of online interaction, virtue ethics and epistemology, the rights of minority cultures and the history of German philosophy. He holds a Ph.D in philosophy from Sorbonne Université and was previously a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre de recherche en éthique in Montreal.
