About

Andy Yu

I'm a graduate student in philosophy at Oxford.

My interests are in philosophical logic and the philosophy of language, as well as metaphysics and epistemology.

In 2014–2015, I was a visiting student in philosophy at NYU.

Before coming to Oxford, I studied philosophy at McGill.

I was born and raised in Hong Kong, which was a British colony until 1997, but has since been returned to China.

Research

Dissertation

My dissertation, Fragmented Truth, is supervised by Timothy Williamson and Volker Halbach. I argue that logical, linguistic, metaphysical, and epistemological considerations motivate taking more seriously than usual the contention that truth is fragmented.

Papers

Please get in touch for drafts of the following papers:

  • Epistemic modals and sensitivity to contextually-salient partitions” (under review)
  • Logic for alethic pluralists” (under review)
  • The indefinite extensibility of proposition” (in progress)

Teaching

I'm happy to teach in the areas of philosophical logic, the philosophy of language, metaphysics, and epistemology, as well as the philosophy of mathematics.
