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. You can learn more about my work on my research page and in this 3:am Magazine interview. I keep a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page here.
