Alumni Association Distinguished Teaching Award
Remy Debes

Dr. Debes earned his doctorate in Philosophy at the University of Michigan in 2006, where he won university-wide recognition for his teaching and national recognition as a Charlotte Newcombe Fellow for his dissertation work. He then joined the University of Memphis to pursue his research in Ethics, Moral Psychology, and the History of Ethics.

His students describe his teaching style as “thoughtful, energetic, and engaging.” He is equally talented at eliciting and answering questions. Both philosophy graduate and undergraduate students praise his teaching skills, dedication to scholarship, and most importantly, his commitment to having students learn the material at the highest academic level possible.

In 2007, just one year after earning his doctorate Debes published two articles on David Hume in the British Journal for the History of Philosophy.
