I am a specialist in 17th and 18th Century Philosophy. I have written on Hume, Descartes, Locke and on physiology in the early modern period. Recent work includes writing on Bayle, on skepticism in the early modern period, on Locke, on theories of custom, habit and the association of ideas. Currently I am working on a book tentatively entitled The Philosophy of Habit: An Intellectual History.
