Resident Scholars and Fellows

Janice Tzuling Chik

Janice Tzuling Chik

John and Daria Barry Foundation Fellow, AY 2019-20

Dr. Chik earned an AB at Princeton University, an MA in Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin, and her doctorate in Philosophy at the University of St Andrews. Her research spans the history of philosophy, focusing on action theory, metaphysics, philosophy of science, and human rights, and has been published in the Review of Metaphysics, Routledge, University of Cambridge Press, T&T Clark Edinburgh, and other venues.

As the Barry Fellow, Dr. Chik devoted herself to research within the Collegium Institute Anscombe Archive at Penn, producing multiple talks and papers, including an essay for the annual PRRUCS volume on “Anscombe and the First Amendment.” She also served as a Lecturer in the Penn Philosophy Department, co-teaching a special seminar in spring 2020 entitled, “What is Life: A Philosophical and Scientific Investigation of Nature.” Dr. Chik was also appointed as a Research Associate of Blackfriars Hall of Oxford University and is now Associate Professor of Philosophy at Ave Maria University.

Dr. Nathan Hauthaler

Dr. Nathan Hauthaler

John and Daria Barry Foundation Fellow, AY 2020-21

Dr. Hauthaler completed his PhD in Philosophy at Stanford University in 2020. He wrote a dissertation on the philosophy of action, defending Anscombe’s seminal thesis that intentional action constitutively involves practical knowledge. Prior to Stanford he completed an MPhilStud in Philosophy at the University of London (Birkbeck), and has also obtained master’s degrees in Philosophy as well as Law at Graz University. As the Barry Fellow, Dr. Hauthaler will investigate the Collegium Institute Anscombe Archive material to develop and refine his working manuscripts, which include “For No Particular Reason” (an Anscombean critique of the idea that all intentional action is done for reasons); “Two Notions of Practical Knowledge in Intention” (on Anscombe’s and Anscombean conceptions of practical capacity and knowledge and their connection); and “Modern Moral Psychopathy” (on Anscombe on the doctrine of double-effect and its defense).

John Peter DiIulio

James N. Perry Scholar of Philosophy, Politics, and Society

Dr. J.P. DiIulio received his BA in political science from Penn, and his MA and PhD in politics from Princeton University. His research interests include modern political thought, ethics, action theory, and the history of philosophy. His first completed monograph has been provisionally titled, “Completely Free: The Moral and Political Vision of J.S. Mill.”  His next research project engages the moral philosophy of G.E.M. Anscombe. Prior to returning to Penn, Dr. DiIulio served as the Thomas W. Smith Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Princeton University. Now in addition to serving as the James N. Perry Scholar of Philosophy,  Politics, and Society in Penn’s Program for Research on Religion and Urban Civil Society, he is also Senior Fellow at the Penn Partnership for Effective Public Administration and Leadership Ethics and Perry-Hager-La Ruffa Scholar-in-Residence with PRRUCS.
