I am a philosopher by training, and I publish mainly in the domain of metaphysics. My teaching interest, however, is in the fields of ethics and philosophical aspects of the law (especially the criminal law). Teaching is the most satisfying work I do: my students, perhaps unbeknownst to them, have taught me more than I have them. I am Singaporean, but with an outsider's eye; and, I think that in a genuinely pluralistic society one might need to seek membership in more than one religious tradition, heretical as this may sound. Yet, and certainly more importantly, I am also a son, a friend, a lover of early Japanese cinema and am becoming a lifelong reader of Hong Lou Meng-a novel which I hope to discuss with future generations of younger Singaporeans.
