Welcome

I am currently a reader in philosophy at Royal Holloway, University of London. The aim of this website is to collect together some of my research and lectures, and set out my philosophical interests.

The central questions driving my research are about how thought is able to correspond to, or be disclosive of, the world. The focus of my research to date has been the philosophies of Kant, Hegel and Deleuze and their different attempts to provide an account of the grounds of judgement. My current research focuses on the twentieth century French tradition, and the attempt in philosophers such as Bergson, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty and Deleuze to provide an account of thinking that escapes from the post-Kantian assumption that the paradigmatic mode of thinking is judging. I am also interested in the work of Kierkegaard, and the affinities of his ethical thought with modern French philosophy.
