I work on issues in political philosophy and the history of normative thought from Grotius through Marx.
I’ve published a book on distributive justice and I am writing another wherein I articulate and defend a social democratic theory of justice.
I’m also interested in issues of non-ideal theory, including just war theory and how we should recognize and respond to systemic injustices.
My work is usually grounded in the history of philosophy. I view philosophy as a series of conversations about some hard questions that other disciplines can’t deal with – and I believe that one has to understand the conversation one wants to be part of, i.e. to know the relevant history of philosophy.
You’ll find full texts of many of my publications on my academia.edu page.
