Anthony S. Gillies

Sherwin Scott Professor of Philosophy

Anthony (Thony) Gillies works on stuff about how rational(ish) but imperfectly informed agents like us communicate about and operate in an unpredictable world like ours full of other agents. This cross-cuts topics in formal semantics, philosophical logic, formal epistemology, and various parts of the decision sciences.

Prior to returning to Arizona, Thony was a member of the philosophy department at Rutgers for 11 years and has held appointments at the University of Michigan,
Harvard University, and the University of Texas at Austin.

Other tidbits: he runs, has an espresso and pizza problem, and his Erdös number ≤ 5.
