I am a PhD candidate (ABD) in philosophy at the University of Calgary. My dissertation is about pragmatist and idealist approaches to resolving the apparent tension between the nature of intentionality and a plausible commitment to (some sort of) a naturalistic worldview. This means I spend a lot of time thinking about Kant, Hegel, Peirce, Dewey, Wittgenstein, Sellars, McDowell, Brandom, and Price, among others. My dissertation supervisor is Mark Migotti.
I currently hold a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship (2015-2018), and will be a visiting scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Philosophy in Fall 2017, under the sponsorship of Robert Brandom.
March 14, 2017 – A paper of mine, in which I critique Huw Price’s “subject naturalism”, has been accepted for presentation at the Canadian Philosophical Association Congress in May, at Ryerson University in Toronto.
December 15, 2016 – I have written something new for A Philosopher’s Take, called “We Care a Lot: Stoicism and Troubled Times”.
October 1, 2016 – I am pleased to announce that in Fall term 2017 I will be a Visiting Scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Philosophy.
September 15, 2016 – I presented at the Idealism and the Metaphilosophy of Mind conference in London, UK.
