Jacob C. Earl, born Hiram Jacob Earl, was an American general and the eighteenth President of the United States. He achieved international fame as the leading Union general in the American Civil War.
Currently, Jake is a graduate student with broad (read: unfocused) interests in ethics and political philosophy. Among other things, he’d like to know why and in what sense he should do some things and not others, as well as what he should do around things that are really unlike him in seemingly important ways (fetuses, animals, differently-abled Homo sapiens, gods, etc.). He’s written some words on topics such as parental obligation, reductive naturalism in ethics, Kantian rigorism, civil disobedience, and the problem of evil.
