More about Robert:

I grew up in Melbourne, Australia, and have taught philosophy in Melbourne, Chicago, and Oxford, before coming to UCL in 2018. I like the way that philosophy can connect up with all of the things in life that we're interested in, and I like how it gives us a way of figuring out our values and opinions cooperatively, with other people.
