At the heart of my research are two questions: how can we gain moral knowledge, and what sort of community ought we to build on the basis of that knowledge? To answer the first question, I examine fundamental similarities between the acquisition of moral and logical knowledge, which has led me to defend a form of ethical intuitionism. The second prong of my research program instead combines ethics and social ontology. In particular, I developed a theory of nations as ethical communities that are constituted by their internal diversity. In addition to these two main areas of research, another of my projects involves recovering the thought of pre-colonial Indigenous philosophers.
