Mark Crimmins

Associate Professor of Philosophy

I am interested in language, mind, and reality: semantic accounts  of natural languages including puzzling phenomena such as vagueness and attitude ascription, theories of consciousness, representation and propositional attitudes, and explanations of ontological commitment and its connection to existence.

WARNING: as of February 9, 2021, students have been receiving fraudulent emails seeming to come from my account, offering a paid research assistant opportunity. THIS IS A SCAM and they will ask for you to send them money. Don't fall for it.
