In Fall quarter 2015, I am teaching Phil 90, Basic Problems in Philosophy, which will focus on ethical issues surrounding biomedical enhancement; a description of the course can be found here. I am also teaching Phil 108, Nineteenth-Century Philosophy, which will focus on the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche.

In Winter quarter 2016, I will teach Phil 32, Philosophy and the Rise of Modern Science, as well as a graduate seminar co-taught with Monte Johnson.
