  Jonathan Weinberg

Assistant Professor of Philosophy
Ph.D., Rutgers University, 2001

Professor Weinberg's research and teaching backgrounds range over both philosophy and cognitive science, especially where the two fields intertwine, such as in the connectionism/classicism debate and the nature of psychological explanation as well as evolutionary psychology, "naturalized" epistemology, and questions about the impact of empirical psychology on our views of ourselves as rational (or not). Two of his current projects are an investigation of the scope and nature of a priori justification, and an empirical study of the diversity of epistemological intuitions across ethnic and socioeconomic lines. Were there world enough and time, he would also do more work in philosophical aesthetics, especially on genre and the philosophy of film.
