    The Production and Reinforcement of Ignorance in Collaborative Interdisciplinary Research
    with Zachary Piso, Ezgi Sertler, Ken Marable, Erik Jensen, Chad Gonnerman, and Michael O’Rourke
    Social Epistemology 30 (5-6): 643-664. 2016.
    One way to articulate the promise of interdisciplinary research is in terms of the relationship between knowledge and ignorance. Disciplinary research yields deep knowledge of a circumscribed range of issues, but remains ignorant of those issues that stretch outside its purview. Because complex problems such as climate change do not respect disciplinary boundaries, disciplinary research responses to such problems are limited and partial. Interdisciplinary research responses, by contrast, integra…Read more

    The Urgency of the Greening of Ethics
    Australasian Journal of Logic 15 (2): 592-608. 2018.
    Richard Sylvan, a vanguard in the field of environmental philosophy published a book in 1994 with David Bennett titled The Greening of Ethics.

In this paper, I revisit Sylvan’s and Bennett’s work arguing that their approach to environmental ethics should b…Read more

The term is ubiquitous in development literature in the North but is invariably absent from similar literature in the South. According to Fowler (1992. Building partnerships between…Read more

    The need for an effective development ethics
    Journal of Global Ethics 10 (3): 297-303. 2014.
    Development is entrenched within a Western, hegemonic framework. This can lead one to wonder if development ethics is, in fact, possible. Too many decisions are made and too many policies dominate an international development agenda that are guided by economic forces and national self-interests. Although development ethics has attempted to break through this situation, it has not had the impact that is needed. The current practice of ethics in development is too weak to have the impact needed to…Read more
