My areas of research in
philosophy are semiotics (Peirce, Percy), existentialism (Kierkegaard),
existential ethics (Bonhoeffer), and theology (Chesterton, Derrida, MacDonald,
Zizek). My interests in biology include population genetics, evolutionary
theory, and the co-evolution of bacterial pathogenicity and human immune response.
My interstitial interests include biosemiotics (Deacon, Emmeche, Hoffmeyer,
Seboek, von Uexkull), the creation of a lived or existential philosophy of mind
as found at the intersection of neuroscience and psychology (Damasio, Edelman,
Ramachandran, Sacks), and the elucidation of a realetik vis-a-vis the
biological and metabiological natures of human reality.
