    A Defense of Moderate Haecceitism
    Grazer Philosophische Studien 60 (1): 55-74. 2000.
    The identity of indiscernibles is false. Robert Adams and others have argued that if the identity of indiscernibles is false, then primitive thisness must be admitted as a fundamental feature of the world. Moreover, it has been suggested that if haecceitism is true, then essentialism is false - that accounting for individuation by means of haecceities precludes a thing's having essential qualitative properties. I will argue that this suggestion is misguided. In so doing, I will be defending what…Read more

    This paper aims to contribute to a defense of the now quite familiar argument from the perceptual model of religious experience (hereafter PMR) to the rationality of beliefs formed on the basis of religious experience.

  • On the Alleged Disappearance of Introspection
    Dissertation, University of Southern California. 2000.
    The broad area of study into which this work falls is epistemology; the theory of knowledge. More specifically, it purports to examine the knowledge that human beings have of themselves---i.e. self knowledge. Even more specifically, it is concerned with whether and to what extent self knowledge can appropriately be thought of as a species of perception. I will be assessing the suggestion that we, at least sometimes, come to acquire significant knowledge about ourselves in very much the same way …Read more
