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, Five Books, Meaning of Life TV, and the New York Times. I have also written about baseball and philosophy.
You can read more about me here, listen to interviews here, here, here, and here, or see me in person at the Brooklyn Night of Philosophy and Ideas.
