My research interests concern mostly American Indian/Native American philosophy, ethics, and the philosophy of science as it pertains to ethics. I am most interested in epistemological and methodological issues in scientific studies of morality. Here are some broad questions that guide my research: Can ethics be a science? What is the relationship between science and ethics? Can science be a source of moral knowledge? I tend to approach aspects of these questions by applying insights from Native American/American Indian philosophy to recent scientific explorations of morality.
