OVERVIEW 

My main areas of interest are metaphysics and anything that has a metaphysical angle to it.

I try to engage contemporary philosophy by drawing on the resources of the whole philosophical tradition. It's not my fault that Aquinas is more useful to me than anyone else.

WORK IN PROGRESS
I'm nearly finished with a book on Aquinas's theory of the hypostatic union.

My next book project is a development of what I'll probably end up calling a "substance-centered metaphysics."

I am working on a few papers in ethics--some in normative ethics (on brain death) and some in metaethics (on the nature of human flourishing).

I have plans to hunt that great white whale intention.
