Valerie Tiberius is another naturalist philosopher. She is interested in how we should live and, like Churchland, is involved in interdisciplinary work with psychologists and cognitive scientists as well as moral philosophers. This is more evidence that contemporary philosophy is much closer to old philosophical traditions that David Hume would recognize than many of its latter-day critics suggest. Tiberius introduces her naturalistic position before then going on to outline her theory of well-being. She offers some subtle thinking about the role of rational thinking in deciding how to live a reflectively endorsable life; she also argues that the threats of the relativism her position adopts are not as serious as many think and that because science is finding out things about ourselves this requires we change our self-image, but not to a fundamental degree.
