Over the last few years I have published papers on neglected conceptions of God (such as apophaticism), the messy and heterogeneous nature of religious beliefs, responses to the problem of evil based on dreaming and on divine intimacy, and on the virtues necessary for being a good philosopher. I’ve also published scholarly editions of a number of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s works (including Lectures, Cambridge 1930-1933: from the Notes of GE Moore, CUP, 2016).

 

Currently I'm working on a book about Wittgenstein’s lifelong attempt to discover and enact a way to live well in the face of the terrifying fragility of everything we hold dear. I’m also writing papers about the phenomenon of ‘theapathy’ (i.e. being utterly indifferent to God), the possibility of theism without metaphysical commitments, and the nature of philosophical revolutions.

 

Copies of some of my papers can be found here.
