Ongoing Research Projects


Most generally, I am interested in the crossover between the various types of identity (personal, numerical, narrative, etc.) and the establishment and implications of various character traits. What makes you the same 'you' over a period of time? How are character traits (honesty, courage, honor, etc.) associated with the various concepts of identity? What does it mean for your identity to change, yet you remain the same person?
 
I'm also interested in using philosophical introspection to determine how we achieve personal growth, establish and justify our beliefs, and determine what role we (humans) have in the universe.
