I am a philosopher working mostly on the history of ethics. Currently, I am working on a long-term project on Stoic ethics, examining its significance for Kant and contemporary ethics.
My previous work on Kant examines a range of topics: his ethics and moral psychology; his contributions to the logical humanist tradition; his aesthetics and theory of the sublime; his philosophical methodology; and his understanding of the essentially reflective nature of the rational mind.
