I hold degrees in Philosophy from Yale, Oxford and Princeton and have taught in the USA, Canada, and Germany, before coming to the UK in 2009 to live and work. I teach and write in the history of modern philosophy and on early modern science and also work in the areas of ethics and aesthetics with a special interest in the evolution of morality and the science behind visual experience.
My research interests currently include the Philosophical anthropology of the 18th century; alternatives to moral realism; Descartes, Leibniz, and the life sciences; evolutionary theory and the foundations of ethics; and the psychology behind literature and the visual arts.
