The Methodological, Metaphysical, and Epistemological Assumptions of Kant's Theoretical Philosophy
An investigation of the underlying method in Kant's mature theoretical philosophy, focusing on what Kant takes his subject to be, what his basic premises are, and why he thinks those premises are appropriate. 

Grounding Morality in Truth and Compassion
An extended argument that empathy possesses a certain representational virtue which allows for a robust, non-circular defense of morality. The argument draws on the views of Plato, Locke, and Schopenhauer.
