After completing his Ph.D. at MIT in 2006, Jason came to Carleton in the fall of 2007 as a visiting professor of philosophy. After refusing to vacate his office, he was hired as a tenure track professor, starting in the fall of 2008. Jason is interested in epistemology, logic, metaphysics, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, and just about any philosophical problem worth its salt. He is currently working on papers concerning the nature and possibility of rational disagreement, the validity of modus ponens, and the semantics of English conditionals. He lives in scenic Dundas with his wife Kim, and tends to be exceedingly grumpy when the outside temperature falls below -10 degrees Fahrenheit.
