Getty Lustila specializes in 17th and 18th century European moral philosophy. Much of his research in this area is dedicated to the work of women and other underrepresented figures writing during the period. Recently, Getty has begun to shift his attention towards Indigenous philosophy, particularly as it relates to matters at the intersection of ethics, politics, and environmental thought. Getty is also an enrolled citizen of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.

Ancient Philosophy and Political Thought
Examines the philosophers of classical Greece, primarily Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. These philosophers examined the nature of the material world, of the city, and of the person. The course takes up both the moral and political writings as well as the metaphysical writings. Devotes considerable attention to major works such as Plato’s Republic. Some time is given to early Greek philosophers, to the Sophists, and to later developments.
