I am primarily interested in branches of philosophy to do with normativity, specifically political theory, ethics, jurisprudence, and practical reason. The philosophers I find most intriguing are Christine Korsgaard, Derek Parfit, Marx, Rawls, Burke, Hobbes, and Machiavelli. In my undergraduate degree at U of T I had a specialist in philosophy, and a major in political science. I became interested in philosophy in the last year of high school, when a stoner friend of mine encouraged me to read The Groundwork of The Metaphysics of Morals by Kant, and have been interested in politics since the 2006 Canadian federal election.
