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, the LA Review of Books, the Wall Street Journal, and the New Yorker, and was a Times Higher Education Book of the Week.
My work on midlife has been featured in Aeon, Hi-Phi Nation, Five Books, the Guardian, and the New York Times. I have also written about baseball and philosophy, H. P. Lovecraft, stand-up comedy, and the meaning of life.
You can read more about me at The Reading Lists and 3:AM, or listen to interviews here, here, here, here, and here. I also host a podcast.
