Asher Seidel; Chief Departmental Advisor

Associate Professor of Philosophy

Metaphysics, Epistemology, Philosophy of Mind

B.A., Rutgers; M.A., Ph.D., University of Michigan

My areas of specialization are: metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of mind. My metaphysical interests are broad-ranging. Regarding epistemology, I am especially interested in naturalized and social theories. In philosophy of mind I concentrate on cognitive scientific issues, particularly those arising from artificial intelligence practice and theory. I have historical interests in Plato and selected philosophers of the rationalist tradition. I have offered courses in various 20th Century philosophers, including Wittgenstein, Frege, and Russell. As a sideline, I teach deductive logic to a moderately advanced level.
