Much of my research concerns the intersections between philosophy and other areas. I’ve written quite a bit on the relation between philosophy and its history, especially on what it might mean to say that philosophy is inherently historical. More recently, I’ve been doing research into the philosophical dimensions of reading. I’ve published articles on a wide range of post-Kantian philosophers—including Hegel, Husserl, Gadamer, Habermas, and Deleuze—and I have a particularly keen interest in the work of Paul Ricoeur.

I’m editor of the journal Philosophy in Review.
