Steven D. Hales


I am Professor and Chair of Philosophy at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. I earned a Ph.D. from Brown University. In 2020 I will be a visiting professor at Corpus Christi College at the University of Cambridge. I am also the series editor for Wiley-Blackwell’s This is Philosophy book series. I like bookbinding, woodworking, tennis, cycling, jazz, and craft beer.
