Positions

Overview

  • Most of my research is at the intersection of ethics and science (e.g. neuroethics). I’m especially interested in how we know right from wrong, despite fervent disagreements about contemporary moral issues. Ultimately, I aim to better understand how we can improve the acquisition and exercise of virtue. I develop my position on some of these issues in my book, Regard for Reason in the Moral Mind (Oxford University Press).

    Recent articles of mine have appeared in the Australasian Journal of Philosophy, Cognition, Journal of Medical Ethics, Philosophical Studies, Synthese, and the Southern Journal of Philosophy (the Spindel Supplement’s Emerging Scholar Prize essay).
