My philosophical views
I wrote my dissertation on Kant's theory of evil at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, under Stephen Darwall, and I defended it in June of 2007. After that, I took a year-long postdoctoral position at Notre Dame's Center for Philosophy of Religion. In 2008, I started as an assistant professor of philosophy at California State University, Northridge. Right now I'm working primarily on Kant's moral psychologies, specifically his conceptions of character, evil, happiness, and maxims. In addition, I'm working on meta-atheism, the meaning of life, Kant's moral argument for belief in the existence of God, and figuring out which libertarian account of free will I accept (I'm leaning strongly to agent-causal).
