Kevan Edwards


I am an Associate Professor in the Philosophy Department at Syracuse University. My philosophical interests center on topics in philosophy of mind and philosophy of language. I am especially interested in issues having to do with (i) the nature of concepts (as this term is used in both philosophy and (cognitive and developmental) psychology); (ii) the nature and importance of the notion of reference, in theorizing about both the semantics of natural language and (especially) the nature of psychological states; and (iii) the relationship between natural language and thought, in particular approaches that attempt to explain facts about the former (e.g. the semantic properties of linguistic expressions) in terms of their relationship to the latter.
