Areas of interest
Though I have general interests in the history of seventeenth and eighteenth century European philosophy, my work to date mostly focuses on issues pertaining to Immanuel Kant’s philosophy of mind, perception, his theory of human reason and rationality, and the broader metaphysical and epistemological views with which these ideas are integrated. I’m also very interested in seeing what, if any, connections may be made between Kant’s positions and contemporary research programs in philosophy of mind and metaphysics, particularly issues pertaining to the study of mental content, the nature and significance of self-consciousness, reasoning and rationality, and animal cognition.
