Professional Update

It's been a crazy year. Helen turned down two tenure-track offers, and me one (from St Andrews), for "two body" reasons. Fortunately, things have worked out very well for us even so. Helen has accepted a Bersoff fellowship from NYU for next year, while I have a bioethics postdoc at the University of Pennsylvania. And in Fall 2013, I'll be joining the philosophy department at Bowling Green as an assistant professor, where we look forward to finding a permanent solution to our two-body problem!

We've also had some recent good news regarding publications: Our co-authored 'Mind-Body Meets Metaethics: A Moral Concept Strategy', and Helen's 'Circularity in the Conditional Analysis of Phenomenal Concepts', have both been accepted by Phil Studies. My two other acceptances this year were for 'Fittingness: The Sole Normative Primitive' (forthcoming in Phil Quarterly) and 'Knowing What Matters' (forthcoming in Peter Singer's edited collection, Does Anything Really Matter? Parfit on Objectivity, to be published by Oxford University Press).

Now I just need to finish my dissertation...


  1. Congratulations! It looks like things are going well.

  2. Congratulations to both of you!

  3. That's fantastic, Richard, so good to hear!! I'll be living in NY next year, visiting Princeton, so I can't wait to see you around!
