I am a lecturer in Philosophy at Manchester Metropolitan University. I am also Director of the Particularism in Bioethics, Professional Ethics and MedicineNetwork. My main research areas are aesthetics and moral philosophy, and selected issues in mind and language. I am co-editor of Philosophy and Museums: Ethics, Aesthetics and Ontology(Cambridge University Press, 2015) and editor of a planned volume on Evaluative Perception(with Robert Cowan). I have also published on particularism, thick evaluative concepts, semantic contextualism. I am interested in the intersection between metaethics, epistemology and philosophy of medicine, currently preparing a monograph on particularism and values-based practice.
