Dr Antony Eagle

Antony Eagle
Senior Lecturer
School of Humanities
Faculty of Arts

My research is mainly in ‘theoretical’ philosophy: metaphysics, epistemology/philosophy of science, philosophy of logic and language, philosophy of probability, and philosophy of physics. I teach in all these areas, and their early modern history (especially Descartes, Cavendish, and Hume).

Before coming to Adelaide in 2013, I had been since 2004 Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Oxford and William Kneale Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy at Exeter College. Before that, I completed my PhD at Princeton, and even earlier I was an undergraduate at Melbourne.

I am Treasurer and an Executive Director of the Australasian Association of Philosophy.
