I currently hold an LSTA and have taught for the Philosophy department here at York University since 2003. I came to York after teaching at the University of Toronto for 5 years and McGill University for 2 years. My original graduate and early career research focused on Ancient and Medieval moral theory, and in particular, upon the Ethics of Peter Abailard in comparison with that of the Stoics on the one hand, and Immanuel Kant on the other. I continue to be interested in the cognitive states of agents as regards moral responsibility and moral assessment. My current research project is focused upon the Ethics of Kindness and Cruelty. Additionally I am researching Environmental ethics.
