I have a specialist interest in Continental (nineteenth- and twentieth-century German and French) philosophy in the philosophy of art, environmental philosophy, and philosophy of religion.
My currents projects include Nietzsche (a philosophical biography) commissioned by Cambridge University Press.
I have taught at all levels at the universities of Auckland, Pittsburgh, Calgary and Tasmania, inter alia the following: Introduction to Ethics, Introduction to Metaphysics and Theory of Knowledge, Introduction to Theories of Human Nature, British Empiricism, Quine and Sellars, Wittgenstein, Plato, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Heidegger, Sartre and Camus. I have supervised and examined numerous MA and Ph D theses at Auckland and throughout Australasia.
