Translations as well as original writings are published on this website from time to time. Most of his work in philosophy focuses in the areas of ontological and moral phenomenology with an emphasis on the phenomena of moral orientation and pre-perceptual moral judgement based on the works of Edmund Husserl and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. He adopts a critical approach to these experiences in order to also account for themes of intersubjectivity, temporality, experiences of trauma (including PTSD), experiences of love, experiences with animals, and death. His MA research was specifically centered around the role of transcendental intersubjectivity in extreme moral experiences of selflessness related to the writings of Merleau-Ponty on heroism.
