  • Biography

    Graham's research focuses on the connection between rationality and practical philosophy.  It examines this connection in both directions: it analyzes what it is for rationality to be practical and what it means to describe a practice as rational. Graham's writing thus ranges from essays in moral psychology on practical reason to papers in political philosophy on press freedom and digital file-sharing.
