My main interests are in Continental Philosophy (especially Phenomenology, Merleau-Ponty and Bergson) and Hegel, with a focus on the philosophy of the body, mind and nature in relation to current biology and cognitive science. I am currently studying the problem of the genesis of meaning and sense, in relation to biological and perceptual phenomena. My most recent publications are on: reversibility, expression, perception, animals, faces, embryology and ontology in Merleau-Ponty; organisms in Kant; embodied cognition; animals and humans, in relation to the problem of mind and body; method in Husserl, Bergson, and Peirce. My book The Sense of Space was published by SUNY Press in 2004.
