Bio

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” .
