• My recent research culminates in the book Kant and the Reorientation of Aesthetics published by Routledge (2017) which argues the philosophical significance of Kant’s aesthetics lies not in its explicit account of beauty but in its implicit account of intentionality.

    Aspects of that argument are contained in:

    “The Implicit Affection between Kantian Judgment and Aristotelian Rhetoric.” Philosophy and Rhetoric 48.1 (2015): 1-25.

    “Kantian Meta-Aesthetics and the Neglected Alternative.” British Journal of Aesthetics. 52:2 (2013): 211-235.

    Recently I have been interested in the view of the world expressed in tragedy, which I have explored in two recent conference papers:

    Tragedy and the Very Idea of Ethics

    Kant and Tragedy
