I am the Seymour Reader in Ancient History and Philosophy at Ormond College. My primary responsibility is to contribute to Ormond's rich learning environment and (hopefully) inspire an appreciation for Ancient Greek ideas. I also teach philosophy and Latin (Lucretius!) in the University of Melbourne's School of Historical and Philosophical Studies.
My primary interests are in ancient philosophy, especially Platonic and Aristotelian epistemology and moral psychology. My primary project is an extension of my dissertation work and concerns Aristotle theory of knowledge, particularly the boundary between ethical knowledge and scientific knowledge. I am also working on the question of whether or not moral experts, in Aristotle's epistemology, are rationally permitted to disagree.
Previously, I earned a B.A. (philosophy and political science) at Vanderbilt University, a M.A. (classical philology) at the University of Arizona, and Ph.D. (philosophy) at Princeton University.
