Ulf  Hlobil


I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Concordia University in Montréal. Most of my research is in epistemology, logic, philosophy of mind, and moral psychology. I am particularly interested in reasoning.

I also have interests in philosophy of language and philosophy of action. A lot of what I work on has to do, in one way or another, with normativity and rationality.

I am a member of GRIN and CRÉ and the vice-president of the Canadian Society for Epistemology

I received my PhD from the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. Before that, I received a Magister Artium in Philosophy and Diplom in Psychology from the University of Trier.

What's New?

Jan 2019

Katharina Nieswandt and I just got the proofs for the reprint of our "On Anscombe's Philosophical Method" in The Life and Philosophy of Elizabeth Anscombe (pp. 42-61. Exeter: Imprint Academic) edited by John Haldane. We are very happy that the volume comes out in the year of the centenary of Elizabeth Anscombe's birth.

Dec 2018

The Journal of Value Inquiry just published Katharina Nieswandt's and my paper "Virtues for the Imperfect." In it, we suggest a new neo-Aristotelian account of right action. The account blocks the right-but-not-virtuous objection to virtue ethics.

Phil. Studies just published my paper "We Cannot Infer by Accepting Testimony."

Synthese just published my paper "Faithfulness for Naive Validity." It is about the non-transitive approach to paradoxes and a worry about it that was recently raised by Barrio, Rosenblatt, and Tajer.
