Areas of Interest

Philosophy of Action, Moral Psychology, Ancient Philosophy, Ethics, Metaethics


Tristan has a broad interest in issues related to ethics, including questions about free will and moral responsibility. He is especially interested in contemporary virtue ethical approaches, and this relates to his interests in Aristotle, Plato, and the Stoics. He is also interested in ethical naturalism in metaethics and also in recent attempts to ground normativity in the nature of action.

Welcome to our New Faculty!

The Philosophy Department would like to welcome two new additions to our faculty: Andreja Novakovic and Adam Harmer.

Andreja Novakovic’s research focuses on the work of G.W.F. Hegel.  She is currently writing a book about habit and reflection in Hegel’s account of modern ethical life.  More generally she has a strong interest in the nature social critique — its standpoint, its resources, its consequences.

Adam Harmer’s area of interest include Early Modern Philosophy, Leibniz’s  Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mathematics, and Logic.
