My research concerns the nature of and prospects for rationalism in ethics. I am particularly interested in the kind of rationalism that takes its inspiration from Kant. I believe this rationalism has been misunderstood and so its virtues underappreciated. My philosophical ambitions, then, are twofold: to lay out the best interpretation of Kant’s rationalism, and to develop and defend the best version of Kantian rationalism, one that respects the spirit of Kant’s work, if not always its letter.
