Areas of Interest
Moral psychology, agency theory, ethics
David is currently working on a dissertation about the nature of blame and moral responsibility. Central to this project is a lesson he takes from P.F. Strawson’s “Freedom and Resentment”: we can only understand these things by fitting them into a larger, human context, connecting them to our sociality and the other phenomena our sociality involves. This approach dovetails nicely with David’s general interests in moral psychology, agency theory, and ethics.
In addition to his interest in the foregoing topics, David has also worked on questions in the philosophy of death.
