Research Description


My research divides into roughly six categories.  Click on each link for a (mostly non-specialist) description of the questions I’m working on, as well references to relevant articles.  You can usually find copies of the published articles here … or just email me for drafts.  In 2018-2019, my main projects are (1) articles extending the theory of temporal neutrality in Time Biases; (2) a currently untitled book on ethical commitment, intellectual commitment, and religious faith; (3) articles and public talks on how we live out philosophical commitments; and (4) an article on methodology in modal and temporal metaphysics.
