Jon is currently pursuing his PhD degree in philosophy at Saint Louis University. He moved to Saint Louis after having earned a BA at the University of New Brunswick and a MA at the University of Western Ontario.
His main research areas are:
norms of belief revisions and assertion within the context of disagreement
the relationship between involuntary belief and voluntary action
the role of cognitive virtues in normative epistemology
the rationality of testimonial-based belief
the value of life
In short, Jon works mainly at the intersection of epistemology and ethics. Jon also regularly teaches an introductory course in ethics at Saint Louis University, and hopes to teach courses related to one of the above issues in the near future.
