I grew up in Edmonton, Canada, and completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry at the University of Alberta in 1977. I then earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy and Religious Studies at McGill University in Montreal in 1980, and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh in 1989. I taught in the philosophy department of the University of Hawaii from 1986 to 1989, and joined the faculty at Haverford College in the fall of 1989. My primary research and teaching interests are in core areas of analytic philosophy: the philosophy of language, the philosophy of mind, metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophy of logic. For the past ten years I have also been exploring issues in the history and philosophy of mathematics.
