This is my . There are many like it, but this one is mine.

I'm Peter Finocchiaro and I'm a professional philosopher.

Currently, I'm an Associate Professorial Research Fellow at Wuhan University. (What's an Associate Professorial Research Fellow? A good question without a good answer. It's basically what an Assistant Professor in the USA is.)

Most of my current research focuses on topics in metaphysics, especially metametaphysics and value in metaphysics. More recently, I've been expanding into topics in social philosophy, especially in connection to social construction and sexual orientation.

I am also a member of the Linguistic Justice Society and care a lot about how to manifest linguistic justice in my teaching.

My non-philosophical interests include cats, coffee, and cardigans.


Fediphilosophy is a place for current researchers (including graduate students) and teachers whose work engage with philosophy to network and relax.
