Professor Graham Oppy

I am Professor of Philosophy, in the School of Philosophical, Historical and International Studies (SOPHIS) at Monash. I am also Chair of Council of the Australasian Association of Philosophy. I was elected Fellow of the Australian Academcy of Humanities in 2009.

I have a BSc./BA (Hons) from Melbourne, and a PhD from Princeton. My dissertation was on semantics for propositional attitude ascriptions (philosophy of language).  Some of my early publications were in the areas of philosophy of language and aesthetics. Most of my recent publications have been in philosophy of religion (though I have also published in metaphysics and philosophy of science).
