theodore d. locke

I am currently a visiting assistant professor at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Before that, I was at the University of North Florida, Jacksonville, Florida, USA. I graduated with a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Miami, Spring 2018.

I work on issues in metaphysics, philosophy of language, and philosophical logic. I am currently writing a book manuscript on deflationary approaches to counterpossibles and metaphysical explanation. I also work on issues at the intersection of social ontology and social philosophy.

I can teach a broad range of philosophy courses. In particular, I'm passionate about teaching courses that show students the wide application of metaphysics and philosophy of language such as social ontology, the philosophy of love, and self and other.

In addition to philosophy, I enjoy criticism and contemporary poetry. One day I hope to combine all three interests in a book-length project.

I am also in love with mountains and backpacking. All cover photos are from my amazing journeys through the backcountry.
