Sandy works in moral and political philosophy, the history of philosophy and the philosophy of language. Three of her enduring areas of interest are: questions about freedom, questions about language, questions about language and freedom
Everybody wants to be free, but what is freedom and how can we use the idea to understand and question our ways of living?
We live out our lives amid a world of language, in which we use words to do things. But how do the ways we use language affect how we live and who we can be?
