About the Speaker

Joshua Gert is Professor of Philosophy at the College of William and Mary. He is the author of Brute Rationality: Normativity and Human Action (Cambridge, 2007) and has published papers on rationality and reasons and on color in leading journals such as Ethics, The Journal of Philosophy, The Philosophical Review, and Noûs, among others. In 2009 he won a fellowship from the George A. and Eliza Gardner Howard Foundation and is planning on using the fellowship to complete a book on value that exploits the analogy between evaluative properties and secondary qualities such as color.
