About Matt Moore

My primary area of teaching and research interest is political theory--the study of theories about the best form(s) of government. I also teach and write about issues in public law. I received a PhD. in Political Science from the Johns Hopkins University in 2004. I have been teaching at Cal Poly since 2006.

Classes I offer include POLS 111, 112, 230, 245, 329, 330, 331, 348, 349 and 430.

My recent publications include "Immanence, Pluralism, and Politics" (Theory in Action), "What (and How) Political Theorists Teach" (Journal of Political Science Education), "Political Theory Today" (PS: Political Science and Politics), and "Wittgenstein and Value Pluralism" (Philosophy & Social Criticism). I am currently working on a book on Buddhism and Western political philosophy.
