Chad Van Schoelandt

I'm an assistant professor in Tulane University's Department of Philosophy, and affiliated with Tulane's City, Culture, and Community Ph.D. Program, Tulane's Program in Medical Ethics and Human Values, and George Mason University's F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.

I'm also the Philosophy Department's Director of Graduate Studies, a Philosophy Major Advisor, and the faculty advisor for the Tulane Philosophy Club and for the Tulane Benevolent Society for the Propagation of Assorted Tomfoolery and Other Sorts of Peculiar and Otherwise Baffling Nonsense (a.k.a. Juggling Club).

I did my Ph.D. at the University of Arizona and wrote my dissertation under the supervision of Jerry Gaus, graduating in 2015. Prior to that, I received my M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin - Milwauke (Thesis Supervisor: Julius Sensat). My B.A. is from the University of California, Davis.
