My main interests these days involve defending the claim that our values can be justified by appeal to the same kinds of empirical conditions that we appeal to when we describe states of the world. This appeal process allows us to discriminate between legitimate and illegitimate uses of values in science. Most feminist values play a legitimate role in science. Sexist values never play this role. At least not so far. I also like karaoke.
