John Cerullo

Portriat of John Cerullo standing in the library.John Cerullo earned both his baccalaureate and PhD degrees in modern European history from the University of Pennsylvania. He has been a faculty member at UNH-Manchester since 1981. In general terms, his research interests have lain in the history of Western moral thought, and the ways in which moral values are carried or modified in particular intellectual subcultures. His publications include a book on the attempted accommodation of religious values to science by a set of British thinkers in the late 19th Century; and, more recently, a series of articles on the moral values of politicized French intellectuals in the early decades of the 20th Century. Recently, he has turned to the study of legal theory and its relationship to moral culture. He spent his 2002-03 sabbatical as a Visiting Scholar at Boston College Law School to pursue those studies.
