Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
I have a general interest in demonstrating to people that nearly all areas of philosophy can speak to our everyday lives (i.e., the theoretical/practical distinction is misleading) and that philosophy has an abundance of wonderful advice to offer concerning how we ought to live our lives, from very personal interactions to very public (i.e., political) ones.

My areas of specialization are philosophy of mind, phenomenology, and philosophy of psychology. I also do research in cognitive psychology (e.g., consciousness, action, perception).
