Research interests

Alexander's research is at the intersection of epistemology, philosophy of mind, and ethics. His research centres on psychological, epistemological, and normative questions about belief, such as:

  • What is it to believe something?
  • What should we believe?
  • In what sense can we be held responsible for what we believe?

He's also interested how these questions show up in the history of philosophy (in particular, Aristotle and Early Modern Philosophy) and in legal philosophy.
