Justin's work centers on metaphysical and epistemological problems  surrounding apparently a priori domains, such as morality, modality, mathematics, and logic. He is particularly interested in similarities and differences between the areas. His aim is to understand the place of apparently a priori inquiry in our intellectual and practical lives. His current work focuses on modality and philosophical methodology.
