We host a team of eight full-time researchers, as well as affiliated professorial fellows. As a new institute, we plan to make multiple appointments over the next few years.
We are currently recruiting for multiple positions:
Professor Stephen Finlay will commence his role as Director of the Institute for Philosophy from May 2019.
My research interests include epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy of religion, metaphysics, and ethics. I have published papers on Bayesian confirmation theory, inference to the best explanation, causal inference, the use of intuitions in philosophy, and the problem of evil.
My research primarily concerns the philosophy of groups, that is, how we should conceptualise groups’ ontological status, mental and epistemic capacities, agency, responsibility, and duties.
David Killoren was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and did his undergraduate work at St. Louis University.
My research is focused in two areas. At the intersection of philosophy of mind and epistemology I focus on conscious experience, especially on its role in human rationality.
Profile coming soon.
