Research Projects for Non-Academic Readers

The following are snippets of topics I either am researching or plan to research:

1) What philosophers have to say about truth: a brief history

2) Causation and climate change: why the concept of causation is essential to understanding the concept of climate change

3) What philosophers have to say about the mind:

a) artificial intelligence and personhood;

b) consciousness, identity, and “the singularity”;

c) non-human animals as persons

4) What philosophers have to say about corporate personhood: philosophical approaches to legal personhood (and whether or not a corporation can be a moral person)

5) What philosophers have to say about rights: a focus on abortion

6) The phenomenology of human dignity: How the subjective experience of the self yields the concept of my moral worth
