Current Research 

In a series of papers in progress, I argue that believers aren't to be understood as "aiming at the truth" in their believing, or aiming at anything else, for that matter; so we can't make sense of rational requirements on belief as instrumental constraints on our pursuit of epistemic goodies. I try to imagine the kind of epistemology that emerges when we accept this fact, and show how it illuminates disputes about epistemic agency, epistemic responsibility, and practical reasons for belief.

I also have interests in metaethics, especially in the authority of normativity and the role of normative concepts. I have recently had the honor of a (very gracious) public refutation in The Journal of Philosophy
