Personal profile

Research interests

My research deals with issues in evolutionary epistemology, evolutionary morality, cultural evolution and social ontology in particular, and the philosophical implications of the theory of evolution in general. Currently I am working on a book entitled 'The global contract'. In the book, which is targeted at a wider audience, I argue for the need to cooperate on a global level in order to meet the pressing challenges that face us (such as global warming, immigration and overpopulation).
