    The Transparency Game: Government Information, Access, and Actionability
    Philosophy and Technology 33 (1): 71-92. 2020.
    Democratic governments might be required by law to disseminate information to the people. This is called governmental transparency. What is the burden of transparency? We propose a “pragmatic information theory of communication” that places information accessibility as a foundation of transparency. Using a game model—the Transparency Game—we show that the pragmatic theory is the only one that makes it difficult for governments to appear transparent while not actually being transparent. There are…Read more

    Kant on the Ideality of Space
    Canadian Journal of Philosophy 18 (2): 271-286. 1988.
    In the Critique of Pure Reason Kant argues for a position he calls transcendental idealism. And although it comes as no surprise to claim that Kant was an idealist, it is far from clear how this idealism should be understood. Traditionally, Kant’s idealism has been understood as a version of phenomenalism. ‘Objects of experience’ are constructions of mental data caused by mind independent reality. This reading has been labeled the ‘ontological’ interpretation since on this view ‘objects of exper…Read more

    Kant and Empirical Concepts
    Journal of Philosophical Research 40 441-454. 2015.
    Although Kant is most well-known for his arguments in support of pure or a priori concepts, he also attempts to give an account of how empirical concepts are acquired. In this paper I want to take a close look at this account. Specifically, I am interested in a recent criticism that Kant’s explanation of empirical concept acquisition is, in some sense, circular. I will consider and criticize a recent attempt to solve this problem. Finally, I will argue for my own solution to the circularity prob…Read more

  • Kant's Aesthetic Theory: The Roles of Form and Expression
    Dissertation, University of California, San Diego. 1981.
    Kant's "Critique of Aesthetic Judgement," which is the first part of his larger Critique of Judgement, is enjoying a renewed interest. This renewed interest, however, has brought with it a renewed controversy over just how Kant's aesthetic theory should be understood. Of the many interpretative questions at issue, perhaps the most fundamental is what it is about an object, on Kant's accounting, that makes it beautiful. Traditionally, Kant has been understood as holding a formalist theory of beau…Read more

    Pleasure and Fit in Kant's Aesthetics
    Kantian Review 2 117-133. 1998.
    In the third Critique Kant shifts the focus in his enquiry from the status of factual statements in the Critique of Pure Reason and the grounding of moral imperatives in the Critique of Practical Reason to investigating two methods of considering the world which go beyond the strictly verifiable. This is a move from evaluating the interplay of a ‘determinate’ set of facts and intellectual preconditions to forming what Kant calls ‘reflective’ judgements on these facts. There are two major questio…Read more
