Interests

Ethics, Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Action, and Problems of Rational Choice.

My research focuses on basic equality and the problem of the basis of equality: How can we justify the claim that all human beings are moral equals? In my dissertation, I argue that the moral equality of human beings can be defended even if empirically there is no morally significant property that all human beings equally have.
