This is our dog, Sprocket. Here you see him sitting in a patch of early-morning sunshine in our kitchen.

Recent Events

I was honored to have been awarded the Samuel F. Conti Faculty Fellowship in the spring of 2013. As a result of winning this fellowship, during AY 2013/14 I enjoyed the year off from teaching. At the end of my tenure as a Conti Fellow, I retired on June 1, 2014. I am still directing some dissertations. In addition, I recently completed a seminar on distributive justice.

During the time when I had the Conti Fellowship, I completed the manuscript of a new book. The title is Distributive Justice: Getting What We Deserve from Our Country. In this book I present criticism of other popular theories of distributive justice -- egalitarian, Rawlsian, sufficientist, prioritarian, libertarian, and others -- and then go on to present and defend my own theory. It is (as the title suggests) a version of the idea that justice is done when people receive the benefits and burdens that they deserve from their countries. The book was published in the UK on July 14; in the US on September 14. The OUP advertisement can be seen here:

You can see an abstract of the book here:

I was invited to submit a sort of academic autobiography for publication on a website. After quite a lot of back and forth, I agreed to do it. The resulting document can be seen here:
