I am a long-standing member of the Division with research interests which connect legal, political and social philosophy. The general context of my current research is the debate concerning liberal and communitarian theories in political and legal philosophy.The approach is broadly analytic and recent work includes papers on the family, privacy and the idea of community. I am now working on theories of criminalization, situational crime prevention and friendship. In addition to moral, political and legal philosophy, my main teaching areas also include ancient Greek philosophy.Professional ActivitiesIn addition to serving on the Management Committee of the Philosophical Quarterly, I am President of the UK Association for Legal and Social Philosophy. In this capacity I am very actively involved in fostering the links between philosophers and legal theorists throughout the UK, particularly within Scotland.
