|Biographical Info||I am a philosopher working at Richmond upon Thames College where I teach A level philosophy and the theory of knowledge paper for the International Baccalaureate. You can get an idea of what we do at the departmental website - www.richmond-philosophy.net My research interests focus on the philosophy of the social sciences, metaphysics, political philosophy and ethics. I also have an interest in the philosophy of religion. Building on my doctoral thesis (2001) I have defended in a series of papers the view that social groups are composite material particulars, ontologically on a par with individuals and ineliminable in their own right from our social scientific explanations and evaluative practices. The closest I get to offering a whole argument for this ontological realism about groups is in my monograph, The Reality of Social Groups (Ashgate, 2006). Plenty of people disagree with me.|
