Hi.  I am a philosophy professor at the University of Iowa.  I am currently working on a book-length study of the philosophy of the 17th-Century philosopher and scientist, Margaret Cavendish.  She defends the view that the bodies that surround us, and the bodies that compose us, are sophisticated and intelligent.  Then she proceeds to develop a number of compelling theses about agency and social obligation.  I am also working on some freestanding papers on Spinoza's monism and pan-psychism.

I received my B.A. in Philosophy from UC Berkeley and my Ph.D. from UC Irvine.
