Bio/Research

I am working on philosophical and psychological theories of laughter and humor, where I am examining the views of some nineteenth-century German writers and their anticipation of certain contemporary developments. I am interested in the concept of amusement and its role in theories of laughter and humor as well.

I am also looking at some arguments pertaining to the “unity of time” that involve the sorts of thought-experiments first put forth by Anthony Quinton and Richard Swinburne in the 1960’s. I intend to have the last word on this matter.
