Public Stuff

Here are some things that are aimed at a more general, non-specialist audience. These are a bit more accessible than my published papers, and don’t require any prior knowledge of philosophy or psychology.



  • I have been interviewed here, by Mike Livemore about my work. We talk about attention, perception, species, scientific concepts, and Jaffa Cakes. This podcast is aimed at a general academic audience, so it’s a little less accessible than some of the other stuff on this page.
  • I have interviewed Dr Nikk Effingham for a podcast on time travel.


  • In January 2021, i was interviewed by The Voice of Islam, about the influence of Aristotle’s metaphysics on Islamic Philosophy. The recording is available here (starts at 1 hour, 7 minutes).
  • I have also been interviewed by The Voice of Islam about the role of emotions in our moral judgements. The recording is available here (starts at 1 hour, 7 minutes).


  • In December 2016, I gave a public lecture for the Royal Institute of Philosophy titled ‘what can zombies teach us about consciousness?’.  The slides are available here.
  • I have organised and run a Summer School in Durham to introduce A-level students to philosophy, and I have done some voluntary A-level philosophy teaching at Hills Road Sixth Form College.
