Research Interests

Nick works in Ethics and Political Philosophy.  Within ethics, his work focuses primarily on the ethics of virtual worlds, and on the challenges technology generates for our existing ethical systems.  In political philosophy, Nick works on democratic theory, and in particular the status of marginalised groups within democratic societies.  Such groups include the young, persons with disabilities, and criminals.
