Jared Warren

I'm a philosopher with wide-ranging interests. Starting in the Fall, I'll be an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Stanford University. My PhD in Philosophy was awarded by New York University in late September of 2015. So far, much of my research has been aimed at developing comprehensive and scientifically plausible theories of thinking, existence, meaning, mathematics, and logic. 


My book (SHADOWS OF SYNTAX) develops a combined conventionalist theory of logic and mathematics on the basis of an inferentialist theory of meaning, including a conventionalist-friendly metaontology and a naturalistic treatment of mathematical determinacy. The book is now forthcoming with Oxford University Press.
