My primary research interests area is political philosophy, with related interests in ethics and ancient philosophy. My scholarly research focused on the aims and methods of ethical and political theory, and on the relevance of such theories to how we live our lives. You can find some of this material in my Publications and in the abstracts and handouts from my invited Presentations. These concerns also figure heavily in many of my Teaching Materials, and they have influenced my own volunteer work with groups such as Hope’s Harvest, NAMI Rhode Island, Westbay Farm, and the Olneyville Food Center. You might say that over the course of my career I have gone from theorizing about the connection between theory and practice in morality and politics, to exploring that connection in practice.
