I am a professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. My research interests are mainly in philosophy of psychology and philosophy of mind. Currently my research focuses on issues concerning multiple realization and embodied cognition, however I have just completed a book on the topic of miracles called The Miracle Myth: Why Belief in the Resurrection and the Supernatural is Unjustified. I teach courses in philosophy of psychology and philosophy of mind. I also enjoy teaching introduction to philosophy.
