    Research overview

    Richard’s research is primarily in Post-Kantian European philosophy, especially Nietzsche’s contribution to topics in ethics, moral psychology and philosophical psychology, but also on metaphysical themes in the works of Heidegger, the role(s) of consciousness and their Hegelian heritage in Adorno, and the function and status of ‘forms of life’ in the later Wittgenstein.
