Professor Steinberg’s research primarily focuses on philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and philosophy of science. He is especially interested in the nature of dispositions and dispositional accounts of various kinds (e.g., of mental states, causation, and free will). He also works on moral philosophy and has lately been spending an inordinate amount of time thinking about environmental issues having to do with food.
