Anders J. Schoubye
Lecturer, Philosophy
University of Edinburgh



I am a lecturer (assistant professor) in the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences at the University of Edinburgh. Before coming to Edinburgh, I was a Mellon postdoctoral fellow in natural language semantics and pragmatics in the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University. My primary areas of research are philosophy of language, formal semantics, and logic, but I am interested in issues in a variety of related areas such as epistemology (including formal epistemology) and philosophy of mind.

I did my PhD in philosophy at the Arché Research Centre at the University of St Andrews under the supervision of Herman Cappelen, Jonathan Schaffer, and Josh Dever. During my PhD and MA, I was also a visiting student at the University of Texas at Austin and at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The topic of my dissertation was the semantics and pragmatics of definite descriptions.
