About Me
I'm an associate professor of philosophy at Hunter College-CUNY. My main interest is thinking about how biology can help us make progress on traditional problems of human nature. My most recent book, ​​​​​​​What Biological Functions are and Why They Matter, will be published by Cambridge University Press in early 2019. I also write on the history of science and environmental philosophy.
