Sophie Cloutier
Associate Professor, Faculty of Philosophy

Sophie Cloutier has a doctorate in philosophy from Laval University. She is an Associate Professor at the School of Public Ethics at Saint Paul University and co-director of the Research Centre in Public Ethics and Governance. Her specialization is the political thought of Hannah Arendt, and her research focuses on the intersection and relationship between ethics and politics, particularly with respect to political judgment in multicultural situations and the issue of political wrongdoing. She is also engaged in research into the ethics of hospitality as a philosophical framework for the re-examination of multiculturalism, the meeting of cultures and religions, and the relation of otherness, and is interested in the ethics of care and the thought of Simone Weil. Professor Cloutier recently co-edited the collective work Le temps de l'hospitalité: réception de l'œuvre de Daniel Innerarity (Presses de l’Université Laval, 2015).
