My research aims to answer two major questions: How should we understand the ethical and political thought of Aristotle, and how can thinking about Aristotle help us understand contemporary democracy and education for citizenship? I am especially interested in contemporary appeals to Aristotle to justify educational programs for civic training in the United States.
I am interested in contemporary democratic theory in its own right as well, especially Political Liberalism, Deliberative Democracy, and their critics.
I also have interests in the political theory of philanthropy and issues related to politics of the family.
