Personal profile

Personal information

Research

My research focuses on issues in social epistemology, philosophy of science, and philosophy of religion. Currently, most of it is in collective epistemology and political epistemology: can groups have beliefs and knowledge, are there collective intellectual virtues, what determines the epistemic performance of groups, how do people form, maintain, and reason about their political beliefs? I also apply these issues in thinking about the epistemic qualities of liberal democracy.

Teaching

I teach epistemology, philosophy of science, business ethics, and – if I get the opportunity – philosophy of religion.
