Biography:  

BA Knoxville MA GA State

 

I received my B.A. in philosophy and linguistics from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2014, and I received my M.A. in philosophy from Georgia State University in 2016. My main philosophical interests are in metaethics, metaphysics, and 19th and 20th century philosophy. Some specific topics I’m interested in include reasons fundamentalism and its relation to quasi-realism, evolutionary debunking of moral realism, the various antirealisms about metaphysics, and Nietzsche’s psychological account of philosophers. In my free time, I like to play chess, rewatch The Big Lebowski, and read fiction.
