Research interests

My research is primarily in the area of hermeneutic philosophy with strong links to the phenomenological method. My work centres on developing the notion of enkinaesthesia: the reciprocally affective neuro-muscular dynamical flows and muscle tensions that are felt and enfolded between co-participating agents, and felt, though not reciprocated, in our engagement with non-agential things. My aim is to revise metaphysics in light of this transcendental condition, enkinaesthesia, which must exist if conscious experience is to be possible. My work provides an alternative way of interpreting the world and doing science; thus, instead of using science to explain the world, the enkinaesthetic field of lived experience can be used to explain science and situate the grounds of our moral discourse
