I study ethics, political theory, and philosophy of religion, with serious attention to both Chinese and Western theories and practices.
My current primary research project aims to develop a general theory of religious ethics, incorporating early Chinese insights into the idea of a dao or path that people are taught to follow, and merging these with contemporary theories of social action, the uses and abuses of power, and human subjectivity and agency.
