Research

My primary research interests are ethical and practical in orientation. Since it seems to me that ethical reflection can best take place within the context of some conception of the nature of human action, thought, and feeling, my main concern so far has been with descriptive and normative issues in moral psychology. I am often influenced by ancient approaches to these issues, and so have related interests in ancient and Asian philosophy. I also have broad interests in the philosophy of religion, though I am especially interested in topics where there is some overlap with practical issues (e.g., practical arguments for religious belief, the problem of evil, metaethical views that connect normativity to the divine, etc.).

More coming soon...
