About

Brian Boyd is a doctoral candidate in moral theology at the University of Notre Dame. His interest in the way that personal virtue and communal flourishing are impacted by social structures has led him to focus on economic justice, with particular attention to wages and property rights. Drawing on economics, history, and sociology, his work seeks to describe the situations we face, judge what is lacking from the perspective of integral human development, and offer pathways towards action for justice. Boyd’s dissertation on the just wage details the commutative, distributive, and social aspects involved in truly equal exchanges of labor for capital, showing the constrained possibility of offering just wages under the conditions of global capitalism. Boyd has earned a B.A. and M.T.S. from the University of Notre Dame, a B.A. from the University of Oxford, and has studied at Georgetown University and the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum). He is a Distinguished Graduate Fellow of the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study and the Notre Dame Technology Ethics Center, a Sorin Fellow of the Center for Ethics and Culture, and a member of the Society for Christian Ethics and the International Society for MacIntyrean Enquiry.
