Projects

Planetary aesthetics. This book project develops a new agenda for philosophical aesthetics in response to urgent environmental problems such as climate change and mass extinctions, supported through the conceptual frames of, for example, “future aesthetics” and “intergenerational aesthetics.”

Aesthetics of nature in eighteenth-century philosophy. This project is so far realized through a series of articles: on Adam Smith’s aesthetic theory here and on Hutcheson and Reid on natural beauty, here.

Aesthetics, Environmental Justice, and Ecological Justice. I’m collaborating with Nicole Hall on this project which examines key questions and issues at the intersection of aesthetics and philosophies of justice as they relate to environmental issues and the more-than-human world.

John Muir and environmental philosophy. This ongoing project critically explores the interaction of aesthetic, spiritual, moral, and scientific ideas and values in his writings.
