Don's main interest is American Pragmatism, especially the philosophy of John Dewey. He is also interested in Phenomenology and Existentialism. Don's work focuses on the ways in which concrete life—or what Dewey calls "primary experience"—is the source of meaning and value. He teaches courses in American Philosophy, Continental Philosophy, Political Theory, and Aesthetics.
