Research interests

David is a member of the Global Ethics and Political Theory research cluster

His main research interests include:

  • Morality and politics
  • Political participation, opinion
  • Political philosophy and political theory

David also recently presented his work on political realism and moralism at the IRSE 2013 conference.

Current Research

David's thesis employs qualitative research methods (in depth interviews) to explore the connections between political and moral judgements in UK citizens.

He is also working on an interdisciplinary project between Media and Politics exploring conceptions of fairness in political communication.

As a part of his interest in exploring folk understandings of morality, David has conducted qualitative research in an 'experimental philosophical' vein, gaining insight into the indeterminacy, variability and incoherence of ordinary moral talk and thought. He presented these findings at the UK Experimental Philosophy Group Workshop 2012.
