Ian is a Lecturer at the University of Washington.

He works the day shift in epistemology and metaphysics, but he moonlights as a logic/language/science/mind/philosophy of film enthusiast.

His dissertation was on the metaphysics of reasons and the internalism-externalism debate in epistemology.

Check out some of Ian’s papers:

“Basic Factive Perceptual Reasons” (DRAFT: Please cite published version in Philosophical Studies)

“There Is No Knowledge from Falsehood” (Please cite published version in Episteme)

“Ideology, Socratic elenchus, and Inglourious Basterds” (published in Film and Philosophy (17) 2013: 1-22

“The Explanatory Argument for Factualism”

“The Feminine Logical Mystique” This is an old paper and has several shortcomings, but I still get occasional emails about it so I leave it up here.

“Reasoning from the Facts”
