Dr. Borges is Lecturer in Philosophy. He received his PhD in Philosophy from Rutgers University. He works mainly in epistemology, but also has interests in philosophy of language, philosophy of mind and in the history of philosophy (especially Plato and Descartes). Dr. Borges is currently pursuing the research project Knowledge and Reasoning. The goal is to produce new insights into the role of knowledge in theoretical reasoning. The project is ambitious and it involves traditional and formal epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, and psychology.
