Tzachi Zamir is Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is the author of Double Vision: Moral Philosophy and Shakespearean Drama (Princeton, 2006), Ethics and the Beast (Princeton, 2007), and Acts: Theater, Philosophy and the Performing Self (The University of Michigan Press 2015). He has published essays on the subject of human-animal relations, on philosophical dimensions of acting and self-staging, on philosophical readings of Shakespeare, and, more broadly, on the philosophy of literature. He is currently writing a book on philosophy and Milton’s Paradise Lost. Two essays from that project can be read in Milton Studies (forthcoming), and in the recent The Philosophy of Poetry, edited by John Gibson for Oxford University Press.
