Are there essentially social or normative aspects to cognition, knowledge, language or action? How so? Those are the sorts of big question that have interested me in my research and teaching. In the summer of 2012, I published a short book on "the Pittsburgh School", a group of contemporary philosophers focused on trying to understand how humans uniquely occupy a “logical space of reasons” .

Most of my research lies at the intersection of ethics and moral psychology. Some of the issues I'm currently working on include: (i) the psychology of moral judgment, (ii) the nature of emotion, (iii) personality disorder and moral responsibility, and (iv) evil.

Most of my published work concerns the mind-body problem, some cognitive science stuff about vision and visual perception, or the nature of causation. At Dickinson, I'm hoping to keep up with all that and to start on a project that somehow has something a tiny bit interesting to say about race, gender, and social cognition.
