My bookHegel on Second Nature in Ethical Life (Cambridge University Press, 2017) concerns habit and reflection in Hegel’s practical philosophy.  The author-meets-critics session from the Eastern APA in January 2019, with responses by Dean Moyar and Mark Alznauer, is published in the SGIR Review.

I am currently at work on a project about Hegel’s concept of experience (Erfahrung), its role in the later chapters of the Phenomenology of Spirit, and its relevance to other parts of Hegel’s system, especially the Science of Logic.  I am also interested in connections to feminist standpoint theory.
