I teach Philosophy at MIT, working mainly in ethics, epistemology, and the philosophy of mind. I am the author of Practical Knowledge, Reasons without Rationalism, and Knowing Right From Wrong.
My self-help book, Midlife: A Philosophical Guide, is available in bookstores and can be ordered online. It has been reviewed in the Economist, the Spectator, and the Wall Street Journal, and was a Times Higher Education Book of the Week.
My work on midlife has been featured in Philosophy Bites, Hi-Phi Nation, and the New York Times. I have also written about baseball and philosophy.
