Adam completed his PhD at the University of Sydney in 2014, was awarded a Macquarie University Research Fellowship in 2015, and joined the Department of Philosophy at Macquarie as a Lecturer in Philosophy in 2016.
His areas of interest include philosophy of science, philosophy of biology, philosophy of psychology (from psychoanalysis to evolutionary psychology), philosophy of language, social ontology, and the history and philosophy of race. Adam has taught philosophy at Macquarie University, Deakin University, and The University of Sydney.
Adam is currently working on issues in the philosophy of race. He is interested in the following questions. What is race? Is race biologically real, socially real, or not real at all? Can philosophy of language help us to define 'race'? What role can the history of the race concept play in answering these questions?
