I’m Course Leader and Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Anglia Ruskin University. I work on topics in philosophical zoology, moral psychology, meta-philosophy, Ancient Philosophy and post-Kantian European Philosophy. I’ve been developing a naturalistic interpretation of Heidegger over the past few years and I’m currently working out the implications of this model for understanding our moral and intellectual powers. Connected to the former, I am interested in ‘duties to self’ and, particularly, the way deontology might be grounded on a reconfigured Bernard Williams-esque notion of practical necessity. Connected to the latter, I’m working on a notion of cognitive processing that lies somewhere between passive association and voluntary exercise-the kind of phenomenon captured in the idea of being “struck by a thought”. When I am not pondering these things, I’m thinking about plants, or the possibility of a theistic “argument from inspiration” — or when I’m next going bouldering. I’ve published in the International Journal of Philosophy Studies, the Continental Philosophy Review and the Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology.
