He is the author of Virtue and Meaning: A Neo-Aristotelian Perspective (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming) and editor of Spirituality and the Good Life: Philosophical Approaches (Cambridge University Press, 2017). He regularly teaches courses in ethical theory and applied ethics as well as a course titled “Ultimate Questions: Philosophy, Spirituality, and the Meaning of Life” for which he is developing a philosophy as a way of life approach.

He plans to take up initiatives advocating for a philosophy as a way of life approach within Jesuit education, focusing especially on how philosophy can be a kind of spiritual exercise.
