----------------------------------------

       Professor Scott Soames at University of Southern California will deliver the annaul Soochow Lecture Series, scheduled to be held in June 2009. Scott Soames is one of the most distinguished philosophers in the field of philosophy of language and epistemology.

       Scott Soames is a professor of philosophy at the University of Southern California. He specializes in the philosophy of language and the history of analytic philosophy. He is well known for defending and expanding on the program in the philosophy of language started by Saul Kripke as well as being a major critic of two-dimensionalist theories of meaning. 

       Scott Soames was born in 1946. He did his undergraduate work in philosophy at Stanford University and his graduate work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in linguistics and philosophy. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from MIT in 1976.

       Soames has previously taught at Yale University (from 1976-1980) and Princeton University (from 1980-2004). His departure from Princeton in 2004 was seen as a major loss at the philosophy department there. Gilbert Harman, one of Soames's colleagues, was quoted at the time saying that "He's one of the most distinguished people we've got." Since 2004, he has been a professor at the University of Southern California, Department of Philosophy, and is serving as the director of the school of philosophy now
