Current Research

Dr. Pike writes at the intersection of moral and political philosophy, law, and technology. He is especially interested in the challenges posed by values inculcation, either in the minds of human children or in hypothetical mechanical "minds." Related inquiries have also led him to investigate the relationship between contractualism and sufficientarianism.
