Louis Doulas

I recently completed my PhD in Philosophy at the University of California, Irvine. Starting in the Fall, I will be a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Extending New Narratives in the History of Philosophy project at McGill University.

My research is mainly historical and explores epistemological, methodological and, more recently, metaethical themes in early analytic philosophy (especially in the works of G.E. Moore and Susan Stebbing). I also have burgeoning interests in American Pragmatism. I have additional interests in contemporary epistemology (especially skepticism, disagreement, and progress) and have published several papers on these topics.

I did my MA in Philosophy at Brandeis University and my BFA in Studio Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In between those degrees, before finding my way to philosophy, I worked as an editor and writer in New York, mostly writing about art influenced by the internet. I still have active interests in art and hope to write more on the topic in the near future.
