Malcolm Keating

In front of the Mysore Palace


I'm Assistant Professor of Philosophy in the Humanities Division of Yale-NUS College, Singapore, with a joint courtesy appointment in the Department of Philosophy, National University of Singapore.

I defended my dissertation in the philosophy department at the University of Texas at Austin in November 2014 under the supervision of Stephen Phillips. I earned my master's degree in philosophy at the University of Missouri - St. Louis.

I'm interested in language, meaning, and knowledge. My research employs historical philosophy in the service of philosophy as a whole. More specifically, my work engages with classical Indian philosophical traditions as well as contemporary Anglophone (analytic) philosophy of language.


I keep a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page here. Feel free to email me at if it does not answer your question.
