Eighteenth Century Philosophy
BA University of Regina; MA, Ph.D. Toronto
My research interests are in early modern philosophy with an emphasis on 18th-century British philosophy and on issues of spatial perception and mental representation throughout the history of philosophy. I have been developing an interest in the history of the free will debate culminating in Reid and Priestley, and in Hume and Reid on justice and moral motivation.
I am happy to supervise any topic related to the above statement of research interests.
