I am Silver Professor of Philosophy at NYU's Philosophy Department, and Distinguished Research Professor at the University of Birmingham in the UK. I am the director of the New York Institute of Philosophy and the Director of NYU's Global Institute for Advanced Study. I was Chair of Philosophy from 1994-2004.
My research interests are primarily in epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of language.
I have written on a variety of topics, including color, rule-following, eliminativism, naturalism, self-knowledge, a priori knowledge, analytic truth, realism, relativism, the aesthetics of music and the concept of genocide.
I have held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Magdalen College (Oxford), the School of Advanced Study (University of London), and the Australian National University (Canberra).
