I am a philosophical generalist. In my view, when philosophy becomes overly specialized, it loses touch with issues of interest to ordinary persons. I like to write across disciplines, for anaudience of students and for the educated general public, rather than aiming my work only at philosophical professionals.
My main teaching interests are metaphysics, epistemology, and logic. My current work-in-progress is an overview of metaphysics, entitled Metaphysics: A Labyrinth with Many Doors.
I have a law degree, and I am a member of the State Bar of New Mexico. However, I am not currently practicing law.
My favorite leisure-time activity is singing. I sing (mezzo-soprano) with the New Mexico Symphonic Chorus. My husband Michael Cooke also sings (bass) with that group.
