My teaching experience spans a variety of subjects in philosophy: these include philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychology, epistemology, philosophy of language, political philosophy, and philosophy of science. While I consider teaching to be an intrinsic part of my own research in philosophy, my courses are always student-oriented. I am a committed instructor dedicated to fostering independent thinking in class, while also ensuring my students’ understanding of the course material.
My ultimate goal in teaching philosophy is to help my students think seriously about philosophical issues for themselves. Intellectual respect and intellectual honesty are central values in my classes. Providing a solid philosophical foundation and fostering intellectual autonomy are two pillars of my classes.
