Position: Visitor

School: School of Philosophy

Currently I’m an associate professor of philosophy at Shinshu University, Japan. I mainly work in ethics, theory of normativity and rational agency, the history of philosophy (especially Kant and Sellars), and comparative philosophy.

I did my undergraduate (B.A. in philosophy) and graduate studies (M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy) at Kyoto University, Japan. After receiving my Ph.D., I was a post-doctoral fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) and taught at several universities in Japan as a visiting lecturer. Before coming to Shinshu University, I was a visiting scholar at the philosophy department of UC Berkeley.
