Oliver R. Marshall

Assistant Director of the Saul Kripke Center and Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy, The Graduate Center, CUNY

I'm interested in how we can think about, and refer to, mathematical entities such as magnitudes, numbers, and sets, as well as how mathematical conceptual change is constrained, or forced, by our preexisting commitments. In addition to studying objective conceptual contents, I study how their antecedents entered our species and our culture.
