(B.A., Philosophy, Stanford University, 2014) Tyler is interested in what a good life is and what it takes to live one. He thinks philosophers old and new, ‘analytic’ and 'continental’, Eastern and Western have said compelling things in answer to these questions.
These are some the topics he has been thinking about recently: moral luck, integrity, trust, social practices/rituals, habits, attention, moods, and practical necessity (“I must!”). Currently (Spring '17), Tyler is the GSI for Stroud’s Later Wittgenstein course. His office hours are on Tuesdays from 12:30-1 and Fridays from 4-5.
Tyler’s current and former students should always feel welcome to email him for course or reading suggestions!
