Jay Wallace selected as a PBK Visiting Scholar

Congratulations to Jay Wallace on his selection as a Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar for 2019-20! This program facilitates two-day visits by distinguished scholars to colleges and universities that host Phi Beta Kappa chapters, where they interact with students and faculty in a variety of settings. Previous Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholars from our department were Bert Dreyfus and John Searle. A complete list of Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholars for 2019-20 can be found here.

A recent issue of the New Yorker contains a discussion of a recent book by our own Agnes Callard (Ph.D., 2008), now a professor at the University of Chicago. You can find the article here

Distinguished Research Associates

We are very happy to announce the recent appointment of three very distinguished philosophers, Alvin Goldman, Dana Scott, and Holly Smith, as Distinguished Research Associates in the Department of Philosophy. All three of them have previously been Visiting Scholars in the Department, and we have very much appreciated their contributions to department life in that capacity. We are now very happy that it has been possible to arrange for them to continue their association with Berkeley on a long-term basis.
