Catherine Wilson and David Papineau to join Philosophy Department
The Philosophy Department has hired two internationally known distinguished Professors of Philosophy for one semester each year for the next five years: David Papineau (King’s College London) and Catherine Wilson (University of York).
Professor David Papineau is the author of eight monographs (including, most recently, Philosophical Devices, The Roots of Reason, and Thinking about Consciousness, all from Oxford University Press), three edited volumes, and dozens of articles on many topics in philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, philosophy of biology, and related areas.
Professor Catherine Wilson is the author of six books (including the forthcoming A Very Short Introduction in Epicureanism, as well as Epicureanism at the Origin of Modernity and Moral Animals, all from Oxford University Press), three edited volumes, and dozens of articles in history of modern philosophy and moral theory.
Professor Wilson will join us beginning Fall 2014, with Professor Papineau following in Spring 2015; they will continue in the following fall and spring terms, respectively, through 2018-19. They will be in residence for the full term, teach a graduate seminar, and be available to serve on committees.
