I work on questions of community and intersubjectivity, statehood, interiority, consciousness, humanism and post-humanism. Along with Dr. Lofts, I am the Co-Director of the Centre for Advanced Research in European Philosophy (CAREP). My present research focuses on interiority. Drawing from Stoic philosophy (Cicero, Seneca and Marcus Aurelius) as well as from early realist phenomenology (Husserl, Edith Stein and Max Scheler), I am attempting to develop a philosophical concept of interiority that tries to analyse what it is for us to have and experience meaningfully an interior world. Questions of personal identity, imagination, concept-formation, judgement, meaning and reference, thinking, objectivity, intersubjective relations and community figure prominently in my account. Following Hannah Arendt, I believe our interiorities are not merely a private self-fashioning, but a communicable and rich resource for building larger, meaningful worlds, including social and political ones.
"My KFH year was one of the best years in my life. I made 18 best friends and the class became my family. From The Odyssey to Frankenstein, I loved the literature we studied in English, and by studying how people thought in Philosophy while studying major events in History, the history of Western civilization came alive. Going on extra curricular activities made the program more enjoyable as well as provided time to get to know the faculty. The faculty are at the top of their field but are still more than willing to talk to their students about anything. I understand so much more of why the world is like it is today thanks to what I learned in my Foundations year... I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. It was the best first year of university I could have imagined."
