Research Interests

I have broad interests in ethics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, metaphysics and the history of philosophy. This is tied together by my fascination with the nature of norms, meaning and values. How could they exist in the world? How could we know about them? Must they depend on our desires or emotions? I approach these questions via up-to-date scientific research and traditional philosophical methods of logic and analysis. I also have interests in animal ethics, ancient philosophy, life's meaning and the philosophy of David Hume.
