His primary research is in medieval philosophy, especially logic and metaphysics, with broad interest in liberal education and the continuing relevance of the Catholic intellectual tradition.  He is the author of The Semantics of Analogy: Rereading Cajetan’s De Nominum Analogia (University of Notre Dame Press, 2010) and co-editor of two volumes on moral philosophy: Virtue’s End: God in the Moral Philosophy of Aristotle and Aquinas, and Ethics Without God?
