Early modern Philosophy
Research and Professional Activities
All aspects of early modern philosophy with special attention to theory of cognition, theory of representation, epistemic warrant, and issues in substance metaphysics.  Interest in women philosophers of the early modern period.  Work ranges over many figures, including Hobbes, Gassendi, Arnauld, Cudworth, Masham, Cockburn, Shepherd, as well as more familiar figures.  Main current research project is on Leibniz’s theory of cognition and its place in his theory of substance.  I am also working on the dialogue between Locke’s Essay concerning Human Understanding and Leibniz’s Nouveaux Essais.  Current projects also include papers on Descartes’ principle attribute thought and Locke on the relevance of the idea of substance to the metaphysical status of space (expansion).
