My chief interest is metaphysics, with major interests in philosophy of biology, moral philosophy, and publications across a range of areas including philosophy of mind, philosophy of religion, and philosophical logic, among others. I have written books on metaphysics and ethics, and my latest book, The Metaphysics of Good and Evil, was published in 2020.
