Areas of Interest: Critical Race & Feminist Theory, Social and Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Language, History of Analytic Philosophy (esp. Wittgenstein)
Phil is especially concerned with the role of policing in racial oppression in the US, and what viable alternatives to policing might look like. He intends for his work to focus on how resistance against policing and mass incarceration figures into broader programs of racial justice and social change.
He is also interested in the role of epistemic humility in standpoint epistemology, the rhetoric of clarity in analytic philosophy, and the limits of legalism in leftist politics.
Phil previously completed a BA in Philosophy and Medieval Studies at the University of Chicago (2014).
