About

Dan joined the department in the fall of 2019. He works mainly in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy. Much of his work has focused on issues in Aristotle’s ethics, especially the accounts of voluntariness. His most recent project concerns Aristotle’s theory of practical wisdom (phronêsis). Outside of ancient philosophy, he has strong side interests in the history of modern philosophy (especially Kant) and contemporary ethics. Before coming to Bilkent, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of São Paulo, and before that he finished his PhD in philosophy at Princeton. His work has been published in Ancient Philosophy, Apeiron, and Classical Quarterly.
