Interested in

Iris Murdoch, Philippa Foot, Elizabeth Anscombe, Mary Midgley



I work mostly on Wittgenstein (I studied with DZ Phillips in Swansea and Cora Diamond at the University of Virginia), but also Anscombe and ethics generally. So all four members of the quartet are interesting to me, but especially Anscombe and Murdoch.
