Areas of Interests: My research interests lie in the intersection of philosophies of mind and language, as well as moral philosophy. These days I am focusing on issues having to do with self-knowledge. More particularly, I am exploring how an expressivist take on self-ascriptive utterances helps us to understand our ability to know our own minds, and what consequences that may have for our understanding of reflective/critical rationality.

Areas of Interests: Dr. Wills’ research area is Plato and the History of Platonism particularly in Augustine and the Medieval and Early Modern Augustinians. He is more broadly concerned with the tradition of philosophical theology in general and its relation to the symbolic, poetic and erotic dimensions of experience. Dr. Wills is currently working on the role of myth and imagery in Plato’s Phaedo and is writing on the role of imaginative representation in religious belief.
