Research interests

I am interested in the ethical and metaethical implications of the attempt to integrate findings from moral and evolutionary biology and psychology into moral philosophy. In this work, I explore literature surrounding the foundations of knowledge, metaethical realism, and practical wisdom. 

I am also interested in Indigenous studies and the history of ideas. My research explores how Indigenous knowledges overturn longstanding epistemological traditions in philosophy and how this has implications in debates such as in environmental ethics. 

Teaching expertise

Oscar Davis has taught in a range of areas in philosophy and Indigenous studies, including moral philosophy, the philosophy of science, natural history, Australian history, and the philosophy of art.
