Areas of Interest: Critical Race & Feminist Theory; Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy; Philosophy of Language
Phil is currently thinking about the roles of epistemic humility and common sense in deliberative democracy. He is particularly interested in the history of these concepts in philosophy and politics, and in their manifestations in the semantics and pragmatics of contemporary political discourse.
He also has substantial interests in abolitionist movements (past and present), domination and interference, and standing (legal, political, moral).
Phil previously completed a BA in Philosophy and Medieval Studies at the University of Chicago (2014).
