Nathan Ballantyne

I am a philosopher at Fordham University and most of my writing is on epistemology. In spring 2011, I defended a dissertation at the University of Arizona.

My current research explores a series of epistemological problems that arise from thinking about persistent and widespread disagreement. I’m also interested in the history of philosophy, ethics, environmental ethics, metaethics, and whatever other topics I am co-writing on. (A welcome feature of philosophy, I think, is that it needn’t be a solitary business.)

When I’m not working on philosophy, I like to be spending time with my wife and daughter, listening to 17th and 18th century music, hiking, or exploring backroads.
