About

Profile2014I work in philosophy of psychology, mind, and metaphysics. My research centers on the architecture of human rationality, the nature of belief, and the implications of these two areas for philosophy of religion. My dissertation was a criticism of dual-process theories of reasoning on both empirical and conceptual grounds. I argue that there is just one reasoning system that operates in several different modes. My dissertation is interdisciplinary, and I see my role as a philosopher as both clarifying a dialectic in psychology and (far from being a mere handmaid to the sciences) constructing a theory of human reasoning using psychological data. I am a faculty member at Indiana University Kokomo, where I head up all things philosophy.
