(he/him/his; pronunciation kɑːl ɛdʒətən)
I am a Teaching Associate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Nottingham. I have previously been a Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire, and also taught at Birkbeck, University of London (where I studied for my PhD) and I sometimes teach for the University of London’s International Programme (a detailed teaching list is here). I completed my PhD thesis, on this, in 2016, and have published work on metametaphysics and related topics in journals such as Ratio and Erkenntnis – a chapter on Quine’s metametaphysics is forthcoming in the Routledge Handbook of Metametaphysics.
My main research interests are metaphysics, the history of analytic philosophy, and the philosophy of fiction, but I’m also interested in a number of other areas, among which are social ontology and medical ethics.
Aside from its philosophical aspects (and of course reading it), I’m also interested in writing fiction: I try to collect what I read and write, when I remember to, here.
Depending on my other commitments, I am able to offer tutoring for a range of subjects within philosophy – I have worked with students from a wide range of universities. For more details and to get in touch, visit this page.
