About

I’m an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Florida. My research focuses on early modern European philosophy, in particular on the history of discussions of materialism. The project began by looking at the materialist philosophy of Thomas Hobbes, and the reactions of other modern philosophers to Hobbes’s views. As the project has developed, I’ve been looking more at Leibniz’s criticisms of materialism, and at the work of other early modern materialists, such as John Toland and Margaret Cavendish.
