I am a philosopher-in-training, currently pursuing my PhD at the
University of Western Ontario under the supervision of Dr. Robert J. Stainton. My main areas of interest are the philosophy of time and the philosophy of language. I am working on a thesis about the philosophy of time and its intersections with language, phenomenology, and death.
Does the problem of the essential indexical pose a problem for the so-called B-theory of time? Does the feeling of time's passage support the A-theory of time? Should certain theories of time change the way we think about our own death, or does any of it matter? These are some questions I wish to address in my research.
"Philosophy is the strangest of subjects: it aims at rigour and yet is unable to establish any results; it attempts to deal with the most profound questions and yet constantly finds itself preoccupied with the trivialities of language; and it claims to be of great relevance to rational enquiry and the conduct of our life and yet is almost completely ignored. But perhaps what is strangest of all is the passion and intensity with which it is pursued by those who have fallen in its grip." --Kit Fine
