I'm an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Toronto. Before that, I did my doctorate at Rutgers, law degree at Yale, and bachelor's at Princeton.


My main project for the past ten years has been a manuscript entitled Pragmatist Quietism: A Metaethical System, which has just been published by Oxford University Press. It attempts to explain how there can be objective ethical values that don't require any kind of "foundation".

Now that Pragmatist Quietism is done, I'm moving on to two other projects -- one about methodological issues in normative ethics, and the other on the problem of cultural exhaustion.
