Sam Baron


I am currently associate professor of philosophy at the Dianoia Institute of Philosophy, at the ACU in Melbourne. My research lies focuses on the metaphysics of science. I'm currently investigating the nature of mathematical explanation and its implications for the existence of mathematical objects, as well as the emergence of spacetime within theories of quantum gravity.

My research is currently supported by an ARC Discovery Early Career Fellowship (DE180100414) and an ARC Discovery Project (DP180100105).

I moonlight as a producer for the ABC's Philosopher's Zone.

I am strongly committed to making philosophy in Australia an inclusive space for all. I am committed to increasing the representation of minorities within philosophy. I am committed to eliminating homophobia, misogyny, racism and transphobia from Australia and from the Australian philosophical landscape.

I stand with all LGBTQIA+ persons everywhere.
