Areas of Interest

My chief area of research is contemporary metaphysics. I have special interests in moral philosophy, philosophy of religion, and the philosophies of Aristotle and Aquinas.

I have published on a variety of topics, my most recent book being Real Essentialism (Routledge, 2007). I am currently working on a book on the metaphysics of good and evil.

I am the author of The Metaphysics of Identity over Time (Palgrave, 1993), Moral Theory (Blackwell, 2000), and Applied Ethics (Blackwell, 2000).

I am also: editor of Classifying Reality (Blackwell, 2012); editor of Form and Matter: Themes in Contemporary Metaphysics (Blackwell, 1999); The Old New Logic: Essays on the Philosophy of Fred Sommers (MIT Press, 2005); co-editor of Human Lives: Critical Essays on Consequentialist Bioethics (Palgrave, 1997); and co-editor of Human Values: New Essays on Ethics and Natural Law (Palgrave, 2004).

PhD supervision:

I usually supervise around five PhD students, mainly in my areas of expertise. I am happy to supervise doctoral research students in the following areas: metaphysics, Aristotle, Aquinas, ethics, philosophy of religion.

Undergraduate Teaching:

I currently lecture the Part 1 module Reality: The Big Questions, the Part 2 module Ancient Philosophy and the Part 3 module Paradoxes.
