What I'm up to these days...
This Spring, I'm teaching a course called What is the Human Being?, based on my recent book of the same name; and an introductory course in Philosophy of Religion. I'm also directing several independent studies in topics such as contemporary philosophy of science and Spinoza's Ethics.
My current research includes an article on Kant and contemporary psychology, a project laying out a new reading of Descartes's ethics, a series of papers on Adam Smith and Environmental Ethics, and a series of papers on Maria Montessori as a philosopher.
"The greatest concern of the human being is to know how to properly fulfill his station in creation and to rightly understand what one must do in order to be a human being." (Immanuel Kant, from a set of handwritten notes written in 1764 in his personal< copy of Observations on the Beautiful and Sublime, Ak. 20:41 )
