John Monteleone's interests lie in the intersection between the philosophy of mind and ethics. His primary focus is on the emotions, especially the role of desire and attention in an emotion. John also works on the analysis of particular emotions and character traits, including modesty, pride, and envy. Throughout, he is interested in psychoanalytic conceptions of the mind and ethical development, especially where these conceptions are relevant (often with unflattering implications) to contemporary philosophical ideas about the self, rationality, and moral goodness. He teaches Introduction to Philosophy, Ethics, and Logic.
