I am currently writing a book - 'On Madness' - a philosophical investigation of the intelligibility of psychotic thought (forthcoming with Bloomsbury), and also 'Love's Possibility: On Dignity and Loneliness in Human Life' - which concerns the significance of conceiving oneself as lovable for the palliation of loneliness. This reflects a more general interest: in recovering and deploying the resources of wisdom already contained in such ethical concepts as articulate what it is to live a truly human life.

I will be teaching the Wittgenstein paper at Blackfriars in 2021.
