Brian specializes in epistemology and philosophy of language, though he has interests in most areas of philosophy. He is currently working on a book about normative uncertainty, defending the view that ignorance about moral and epistemic norms is irrelevant to the force of those norms. He has also been defending at some length the view that knowledge is interest-relative, and this is largely because belief is interest-relative. More generally, he tends to work on topics where philosophers working in more technical and more discursive traditions have both made significant advances, but these insights have not been combined into a unified theory. Recently, this has led to a series of papers on the implications of game theory for debates about rationality.
