About me

I am a Professor of Philosophy at Simon Fraser University. I also teach in SFU's Cognitive Science Program. 

I have wide-ranging interests in philosophy, but most of my current research tends to focus on issues in social epistemology, on the cognitive underpinnings of language and communication, or in social and political philosophy. 

My book Prejudice: A Study in Non-Ideal Epistemology was published by Oxford University Press in 2021 (paperback edition, 2022). I'm currently at work on a new project supported by the SSHRC, titled Belief Formation in Antagonistic Information Environments. 

Please get in touch with me via email (endre.begby AT gmail.com) if you'd like to hear more about this project or any other thing I might be working on at this time.
