Expertise Summary

My main interests are moral and political philosophy (construed in the broadest sense) and in particular, I continue to pursue an interest in radical political theory/philosophy. Recent focus has been on Marxism, Anarchism, Philosophical Anthropology and the Philosophy of History which happen to reflect my teaching contributions too.

Work in Progress

  • Karl Marx: An Undergraduate Study Guide (text book)
  • 'Spinning the third truth value - Rhetoric, Truth and the Law of Excluded Muddle' (Journal paper)
  • 'On the Role of Optimism and Pessimism in Political Discourse and Action' (Journal paper)


Teaching Semester 1

  • MARX (Final year module which takes a thematic approach to the work of Karl Marx)

Teaching Semester 2

  • FREEDOM & OBLIGATION (Part 1 module introducing students to political philosophy with focus on early modern social contract theory)

Philosophy Society Liaison

I liaise with the student-run Philosophy Society on behalf of the department. I am happy to help, where I can, with any issues arising in relation to the running and organization of the society. Suggestions for future events and features can be sent direct to me using the email link above.
