I’m interested in history of philosophy, ethics, and technology. My recent research has been on connections between Immanuel Kant’s theoretical and practical philosophy. The next steps of the project involve Schopenhauer and his criticisms of Kant. I’m also interested in the early modern period, particularly Spinoza. My work in ethics is motivated by the conceptual, historical, and moral connections between environmentalism and technology. How does technological development force us to reconsider moral assumptions and priorities? Questions like this have led to an interest in moral holisms, the ethics of creation, luddism, and the future of automation.
