Fellow, Purdue University
I am Professor of Philosophy at Purdue University. I work primarily in the area of medieval philosophy, with a special focus on the thought of Aquinas, but I also have interests in contemporary metaphysics and philosophy of religion.
My project at the Centre for Human Abilities is to work on a monograph entitled Aquinas’s Ontology of Space. The purpose of this monograph is to provide a systematic introduction to Aquinas’s views about space, spatial location, and spatially located objects through a careful examination of each of the main contexts in which he develops them—namely, his philosophical and theological treatments of locomotion (motus localis), spatial location (ubi), and place (locus).
