Harvey Lederman is an assistant professor of philosophy, with broad interests in contemporary philosophy and in the history of philosophy. He is currently working on two larger projects, one about Frege's puzzle, and a second about the moral psychology and epistemology of the great Ming dynasty philosopher Wang Yangming (1472-1529). He has written extensively on the notion of common knowledge, and also written about interpersonal well-being comparisons, non-classical and modal set theories, models of awareness in economic theory, and a notion of ontological dependence Aristotle develops in his discussions of blood and of time.
