Bio/Research

My research concerns the history of late modern philosophy and connections between philosophy and literature. In late modern history, I have focused primarily on Kant and his influence on 19th century philosophy.

My book on Kant’s critique of metaphysics (The Poverty of Conceptual Truth, 2015) has recently come out with Oxford. I have also written articles on Kant's theoretical philosophy, on Nietzsche, and on the neo-Kantian movement. In the near future, I will be focusing on questions about Nietzsche’s moral psychology and on Montaigne’s philosophical and literary projects in the Essays.
