Leibniz: Philosophy of Mind

I am an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Skidmore College and Chair of the Philosophy Department. My main research is in early modern philosophy, with a primary focus on Leibniz’s philosophy of mind and, more generally, on the development of the uniquely modern conception of consciousness that developed during the seventeenth century. I have recently been developing a secondary line of research into the ethics of forgiveness and reconciliation.
