Biography

Research Interests

My research interests include epistemology and metaphysics in modern philosophy with particular emphasis on Kant and Nietzsche. I am especially interested in how these historically situated approaches intersect with contemporary debates. Through my work on Nietzsche’s will to power thesis and his critical engagement with Kant, I have developed a strong interest in the metaphysics of causal powers and dispositions in both an historical and contemporary context. More recently, I have been working on issues pertaining to the metaphysics of value. Drawing on the resources of historical and contemporary perspectives, the project involves an investigation into questions surrounding the phenomenology of value and what kind of property, if any, a value might be and whether the metaphysics of dispositions can offer us help in answering this question. My current research dovetails with my role as primary editor of the ‘Values and Identities’ series published by Rowman and Littlefield International: https://www.rowmaninternational.com/our-publishing/series/values-and-identities-crossing-philosophic.... I am currently supervising doctoral students writing on the value of knowledge problem, in addition to projects on both Nietzsche’s metaphysics and his philosophy of mind, freedom and agency.
