I work mostly in ancient Greek philosophy, especially in Plato’s and Aristotle’s ethics. I’m currently completing the module on Book V of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics for Project Archelogos. When I finish that, I plant to work more on grace (see "Aristotelian Grace," below).

Some papers dealing with Aristotle on virtue and the virtues:

A few pieces I'm pleased with:
And a couple of waifs (click on the titles to download):

The Commentary is an edited compilation of the minutes of the West Coast Aristotelian Society's discussions over a period of years on Eudemian Ethics, Books I and II.  Those working on these books might find parts of it helpful. 

"Notes on Cavell" is a set of notes prepared to assist a reading group that worked through Stanley Cavell's The Claim of Reason when it first appeared in 1979.  It is posted here for anyone who might find it useful.
