Teaching Fellow (Philosophy)
I passed my PhD, which I completed at The University of Liverpool, on 1st May 2020 with my thesis "Quasi-Realism: A Defence". I defend a version of ethical quasi-realism called ideal quasi-realism. In my thesis I defend quasi-realism from challenges which suggest that it is either not realist enough, or that it is not anti-realist enough. In short, I show that there is logical space for quasi-realism in metaethics. I argue that my theory, ideal quasi-realism, can solve various challenges for the quasi-realist such as the moral attitude problem, the revised relativism objection, and the fundamental error problem. My primary research interests are in metaethics, normative ethics, and metaphilosophy. I am currently working on several papers and articles.
My research interests are metaethics and ethics. I'm primarily interested in quasi-realism, moral relativism, and how ethics and metaethics interact (for example, whether a metaethical theory might be morally blameworthy). In my research I defend a version of quasi-realism called ideal quasi-realism.
