My research focuses on the Evolutionary Debunking Arguments. These arguments basically start with an empirical claim that evolutionary forces have a huge, distorting influence on our moral beliefs. Thanks to the evolutionary influence, evolutionary debunkers aim at showing that the epistemic statuses of our moral beliefs are ultimately undermined. And my PhD focuses on evaluating various objections to Evolutionary Debunking Arguments.
