I’m interested in questions at the intersection of philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, and moral psychology.  My forthcoming book, Alien Experience, argues that one can sometimes be alienated from a perception (as one can sometimes be alienated from a desire).  This has implications for how we think about self-control, bias, cognitive penetration, and representationalist perceptual theories.  In my current teaching, I’m thinking about the nature of unconscious cognition.  And in my current writing, I’m thinking about how a perception could be epistemically problematic without being inaccurate.
