“The imagination is an essential tool of the mind, a fundamental way of thinking,
an indispensable means of becoming and remaining human.”
– Ursula K. Le Guin “The Operating Instructions”


I work primarily in philosophy of mind.  Much of my work concerns imagination – what it is and what it is used for.  I have also done considerable work on phenomenal consciousness.  More information is available on my research page.  See also my PhilPapers profile and my Google Scholar profile.

At CMC, I teach classes in philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and logic.
