While my earliest published writings primarily concern modern moral and political philosophy, in more recent years my research and writing have been devoted largely to issues in the philosophy of religion, with particular attention to medieval and ancient authors such as Aquinas, Anselm, Augustine and Plato. In all of this work, however, Wittgenstein has been a constant influence.

Meanwhile, I teach our two logic courses (Phl 101 and Phl 201), both devoted more to ancient than to modern logic. My other regular courses are Medieval Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion. In all of my teaching I am pre-occupied by questions about the nature of logic and of language and by questions about the relation between language and reality. But I take it that these have been fundamental questions throughout the history of philosophy.

My major research interest is in the proper methods of metaphysical inquiry and the possibility of systematic metaphysical projects. In particular, I am interested in early modern conceptions of metaphysics and the challenges to metaphysics posed by transcendental idealism. My research focuses primarily on the philosophy of Kant as well as his relationship to previous early modern philosophers including Leibniz, Wolff and Baumgarten. Recently, I have written on the role of completeness in Kant’s metaphysics and the viability of the principle of sufficient reason as a metaphysical first principle. I have strong secondary interests in the philosophical issues raised by religion, film, architecture, and mental illness. In addition to courses in the core curriculum I also  enjoy teaching early modern philosophy, ethics, and feminist philosophy.
