I specialize in the history of German philosophy, with an emphasis on the eighteenth century. My recent research has focused on issues in metaphysics and the philosophy of mind in the period from Leibniz to Kant. For the 2016-17 academic year I was a Humboldt Research Fellow at the Martin-Luther-Universitaet Halle-Wittenberg. I am currently Professor and Faculty Scholar for Arts and Humanities at Western University in London, Canada.
