His research focuses on the overlap of moral, psychological, and legal issues concerning human agency and freedom, including especially blame, punishment, and moral responsibility.

He is the author of "Building Better Beings: A Theory of Moral Responsibility" (OUP, 2013), and co-author, with John Martin Fischer, Robert Kane, and Derk Pereboom, of "Four Views on Free Will" (Blackwell, 2007). He co-edited, with Gideon Yaffe, "Rational and Social Agency: The Philosophy of Michael Bratman" (OUP, 2014).
Vargas’s research has won numerous national awards, prizes, grants, and fellowships. Building Better Beings was awarded the American Philosophical Association's Book Prize in 2015 (given every two years for the best book in philosophy by a younger scholar).
