Louis Doulas

I’m a PhD candidate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Irvine.

My research is both historical and theoretical, focusing on the history of analytic philosophy (especially G.E. Moore, Susan Stebbing, and Friedrich Waismann) and on issues in epistemology, metaphysics, and methodology. I also have interests in aesthetics, ethics, and the philosophy of language.

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.
