Justin Vlasits

I am Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Illinois, Chicago. From 2017 to 2021 I was Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter in the Philosophisches Seminar at the Universität Tübingen.

I work mainly on ancient philosophy. These days I'm mostly writing about methodology in ancient philosophy and science, as well as women in early analytic philosophy such as Margaret MacDonald and Olga Hahn. I enjoy teaching a wide variety of courses, but have thus far concentrated on ancient philosophy, classical Arabic philosophy, and epistemology.

In 2017, I received a PhD from the Joint Program in Ancient Philosophy at the Philosophy Department at UC Berkeley with a dissertation on the method of division in Plato and Aristotle. I argue that it plays an important role in the history of logic.
