Siena Hall 412
Joshua Alexander joined the philosophy faculty at Siena College as Assistant Professor in Fall 2008. He received an M.A. in philosophy from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (1999) and his Ph.D. from Indiana University (2008). He is an epistemologist whose work is at the intersection of philosophy and psychology. Most of his published work is on the nature and epistemic status of philosophical intuitions, the nature of epistemic expertise, and on concepts and conceptual competence. He is also interested in the epistemology of disagreement, the nature of epistemic normativity, the value of knowledge, and a variety of questions in the philosophy of logic, philosophical psychology, and the history of analytic philosophy. He has published articles and reviews in Behavioral and Brain Sciences, The Monist, Philosophical Psychology, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Philosophy Compass, Philosophy of Science, and Review of Philosophy and Psychology, and has just published his first book, Experimental Philosophy: An Introduction. He was just awarded a two-year research grant from the Fuller Theological Seminary/Thrive Center for Human Development in concert with the John Templeton Foundation for his research on intellectual humility.
