St. Andrews Hires Berto and Dickie


The Department of Philosophy at the University of St. Andrews has made two senior hires: Francesco Berto, currently professor at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation and Department of Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam, and Imogen Dickie, currently professor of philosophy at the University of Toronto.

Professor Berto works in logic, the philosophy of logic, and metaphysics. He will be taking up his new position at St. Andrews in the fall of 2018, at which point St Andrews will become the host institution for his ERC-funded research project “The Logic of Conceivability.” You can read an interview with Professor Berto here.

Professor Dickie works in philosophy of language, the philosophy of mind, epistemology, and the philosophy of action. She will be moving to St. Andrews in the summer of 2019, when she will become the first Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of Philosophy. You can read an interview with Professor Dickie here.
