Research Interests
I focus on the history of early modern philosophy, and have significant secondary interests in moral psychology.
Research Abstract
My published work has focused on issues in early modern moral psychology:
in particular, on conceptions of freedom, and of the passions. My
continuing work on those topics is part of a long-term project on early
modern conceptions of freedom. Although my published work has been
topically, rather than textually or systematically, oriented, I am working
towards two shorter-term projects that are textually oriented: a
translation and edition of Leibniz's Theodicy, on which I am collaborating with R. C. Sleigh, Jr., and a
systematic interpretation of the philosophy of Malebranche. I continue to
research, and teach, on a range of topics and philosophers in the early
modern period.
