His recent current research is on distributive justice. Some of this
explores how one might best incorporate a reasonable account of
responsibility into a broadly egalitarian theory of justice. He also
how consequentialist morality (one ought always to do an act the
of which are no worse than those of any alternative available act)
be developed in a version that is appealing and appropriately
to its critics. This latter project involves exploring the
of moderate deontology to identify the best rival of
consequentialism. He does some applied ethics.

it's a zombie or ghost.
