Interested in

Philippa Foot, Elizabeth Anscombe, Mary Midgley



I am a scholar of Aristotle. I have written about his biology, psychology and ethics. I continue to research about how Foot, Anscombe and Midgley brought aspects of his ethics into their own thinking. My outputs in this area are currently slim but I hope to expand them in future. I love Murdoch's novels but haven't integrated her thinking into my research as yet.
