Harvey Lederman


I'm currently a Bersoff Assistant Professor / Faculty Fellow in the department of philosophy at NYU. Starting in the Fall of 2016 I'll be an Assistant Professor in the department of philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. You can view my CV here.

I received my DPhil from Oxford in 2014. My dissertation, Uncommon Knowledge, was supervised by Frank Arntzenius and Timothy Williamson.

Before going to Oxford, I studied Classics at Cambridge and Princeton. I am still working on a variety of projects about Aristotle's physics and metaphysics. I also have a longstanding interest in ancient China, and am currently working (together with Ernest Brewster) on two projects about moral knowledge in the writings of Wang Yangming and his immediate successors.
