Professor of PhilosophyatUniversity of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Ram Neta specializes in epistemology and is currently at work on a book on the nature of knowledge. In particular, he is trying to understand what knowledge is by examining the various ways in which knowing some things depends upon knowing other things. He regularly teaches seminars in epistemology, occasionally teaches seminars in the philosophy of mind or the history of analytic philosophy, and also regularly teaches introductory courses in philosophy. Together with Walter Sinnott-Armstrong of Duke University, he teaches a Coursera course on reasoning to hundreds of thousands of students.
