Lillian King Abadal

Ethics, history of philosophy, applied ethics and medical humanities

Dr. Lily Abadal completed her doctorate under the mentorship of Thomas Williams at the University of South Florida, focusing on the history of medieval philosophy and virtue ethics. Her dissertation was on Peter Abelard’s moral psychology in which she defended the thesis that Peter Abelard is not a proto-Kantian. Lily has presented original research at the American Academy of Religion’s annual conference, The New College Conference for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Notre Dame’s Center for Ethics and Culture, and numerous other academic conferences. She maintains an interest in history of medieval philosophy but has also begun developing several ideas in applied virtue ethics, particularly in healthcare and medicine. She has two forthcoming publications on the concept of moral injury inspired by this budding interest. In addition, her teaching is focused on developing compelling curriculum in the “medical humanities.”
