I’m currently a PhD candidate in Philosophy at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
My philosophical interests are generally quite broad. Though my work currently centres mainly on a single 17th Century philosopher (Benedictus de Spinoza), it was the breadth and insight of Spinoza’s philosophy that initially led me to him.
My prior, concurrent, and abiding interests are mostly in practical reason and human action, philosophy of mind and science, German Idealism, Kant, Wittgenstein, and Jewish Philosophy, among other areas. I see implications for Spinoza’s views (and my take on those views) in contemporary work in metaphysics, cognition, perception, ethics, and political philosophy.
