Current research

I am currently working on several projects: (1) I am further developing Epistemic Kantianism in my book project Respect for Truth: A Kantian Account of Theoretical Normativity, which is nearing completion.  (2) I am working on reviving a traditional account of knowledge as a world-presenting mental relation, and exploring the role of this account of knowledge in classical Indian epistemology.  (3) I am working with Claire Field on the philosophy of neurodiversity, and also exploring the implications of neurodiversity for philosophy of mind and epistemology with Andrew Stephenson.  (4) I am working on a new edition of the Blackwell Companion to Epistemology.
