I specialize in the history of early and late modern European philosophy. Within this period, I focus on Kant’s theoretical philosophy and related issues in German philosophy from Leibniz to Frege. Topically, my research in this area focuses on issues in the philosophy of mind and language, including the semantics of mental content, the nature of consciousness, self-reference, self-knowledge, and the nature of assertion.
