BA (Honours)


Adam completed a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Adelaide before coming to the ANU in 2010.

I am interested in metaethics, particularly moral psychology. My PhD thesis develops and defends a non-cognitivist theory of moral psychology, according to which reasoning about basic moral principles is a kind of means-end reasoning. I have also written on moral testimony, the ‘wishful thinking’ objection to non-cognitivism, and the rationality of acting under normative uncertainty.
