Following this, I moved to the University of Wisconsin at Madison, USA, to take up an assistant professor role from 1977-79. I then returned to the UK in 1979 and became a lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at the University of York. I also undertook my DPhil in Philosophy at Oxford University in 1981. In 1997 I was promoted to senior lecturer at York, where I stayed until 2007. I was made an emeritus professor in 2007.
