Ph.D., Cornell University
I am completing a Ph.D. in philosophy at Cornell University. My interests are mainly in the history of philosophy, in particular the ancient ethical tradition and its later reception. My dissertation shows how one ancient school, the Stoics, used their conception of self-sufficiency to answer questions about moral deliberation, value, the virtues, and the good life that their predecessors had struggled with. I am also interested in early modern philosophy, the philosophy of religion, the philosophy of art (especially narrative art), and what we owe to non-humans.
