BA (2005), University of Arizona, Creative Writing
Philosophical interests: Hume; history of Early Modern (especially Early Modern views of animal reasoning and science); philosophy of science; philosophy of mind and cognitive science; philosophy of language.
Richard’s central philosophical interest is the work of David Hume, particularly Hume’s theory of human (and animal) reasoning. Richard would like to know more about Early Modern views of representation and faculty psychology.
Richard came to philosophy from creative writing, and thinks that the careful attention to the way people both speak and interact explains his text-centric approach to interpretive questions and his interest in the range of cognitive capacities of both human and non-human animals.
He has a great deal of opinions on a great many philosophical subjects, as well as on many television programs and craft beers.
