Research Summary

I have two main areas of interest. The first is nineteenth-century German philosophy, especially Nietzsche and Schopenhauer. My book, Nietzsche's Ethics (Cambridge University Press, 2020) aims to give a brief, comprehensive, clear and accurate account of Nietzsche's ethics in his later works: https://www.cambridge.org/core/elements/nietzsches-ethics/88D0AAC4510DB0C02D216219CED8DC33An edited volume, The New Cambridge Companion to Nietzsche, was published in 2019 (https://www.cambridge.org/core/books/new-cambridge-companion-to-nietzsche/D6889DAA30469B9769F3F8A51D36CAF2).

The second is aesthetics, especially the philosophy of theatre. My first book was Philosophy and Theatre (Routledge, 2013). The book examines a series of philosophical questions or concerns which arise in relation to theatre. I also edited a volume of essays: The Philosophy of Theatre, Drama and Acting (Rowman and Littlefield International, 2017).
