Research

Much of my research concerns the relationship between perception and thought. For instance, among the other things it allows us to do, perception enables us to think about the observable properties of objects (e.g. their colour, their shape, their size, etc.). One strand of my research investigates what this fact should lead us to say about perception and thought. In addition, I write about nearby issues in philosophy of mind, epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of language. I am particularly interested in debates about reference, quantification, communication, and the rational significance of perceptual experience.

I also have a strong sideline in philosophy of law. My forays into legal theory began with the foundations of general jurisprudence, but now also encompass questions about the relationship between privacy and control.
