|Research interests relevant to game philosophy||
I'm interested in the value of games considered very broadly, but especially in relation to aesthetics and political philosophy. I'm also especially fascinated very the question of what various styles of gameplay can reveal about the psychology of make-believe, pretense, self-deception, and dissociation. I'm a devout fan of the ideas of Bernard Suits and Kendall Walton.
