I am a lecturer (2015–20) at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Cambridge, and Fellow and Director of Studies in Philosophy at Robinson College. I am interested in ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, epistemology and the history of western philosophy (the ancient Greek and Hellenistic philosophers, Kant, Nietzsche, the nineteenth-century utilitarians, and the twentieth-century analytic tradition). I have a wider interest in the intellectual and cultural history of the twentieth century, especially in the many varieties of literary, artistic, architectural and musical modernism.
I am writing a narrative history of analytic philosophy and its critics in twentieth-century Britain, provisionally titled Logic Lane. This website has information on my Cambridge teaching, my research and links to my journalism and criticism.
