I am a fourth year ABD doctoral student in the Philosophy Department at Syracuse University. My current research focuses on the relation between normative reasons and well-being, and the agent’s first-person perspective.
In my dissertation I defend the view that normative reasons and well-being for an agent must be related to what she would believe if she reasoned well and had all relevant information.
I rely on it to address the objection to realism about normative reasons that it cannot explain why we should be moral, and the objection to realism and objectivism about well-being that agents would be alienated from their normative reasons and well-being as conceived by realists and objectivists.
