(B.A., Philosophy, Stanford University, 2014) Tyler is interested in what a good life is and what it takes to live one.
Here are some more specific and hopefully more tractable topics he has been thinking about recently: moral luck, integrity, trust, social practices/rituals, habits, attention, moods, practical necessity (“I must!”), and expertise.
Or maybe it’s best just to list philosophers: Williams, Baier, Wittgenstein, Hume, Confucius, Murdoch, Nietzsche, Heidegger.
Currently (Fall ‘17), Tyler is the GSI for Prof. Sluga’s Nietzsche course. His office hours are on Mondays from 2-3:30.
Tyler’s current and former students should always feel welcome to email him for course or reading suggestions!
