 Stephen Neale is generally acknowledged as one of the best philosophers of his generation in the English-speaking world, and the best working at the interface between philosophy of language and linguistics. Neale is known internationally for producing a large body of scholarship related to descriptions, pronouns, quantification, and demonstratives, and his two books Descriptions and Facing Facts, have both been tremendously influential. He has served as an advisor to the Department of Justice on linguistic, logical, and philosophical issues, particularly in connection with Internet filtering technology. Neale holds a B.A. from University College London, and a Ph.D. from Stanford University. He comes to the Graduate Center from Rutgers University.
