Profile of Professor Sam Cowling
Long ago, someone gave Assistant Professor Sam Cowling some sage advice: “You might be tempted to read and cite only the leading lights in your discipline. Resist that urge. Read and cite widely; not just the same cadre of preeminent figures in your field.”
Cowling has taken that advice to heart. In an interview with the American Philosophical Association,when asked about five favorite articles he notes that “these probably warrant more attention than they’ve received so far,” and he goes on to cite:
Gideon Rosen’s “Nominalism, Naturalism, and Epistemic Relativism”,
Graham Oddie’s “Armstrong on the Eleatic Principle and abstract entities”,
Maya Eddon’s “Intrinsicality and Hyperintensionality”,
Dana Tulodziecki’s “Epistemic Equivalence and Epistemic Incapacitation”, and
Gabriel Uzquiano’s “The Price of Universality”.
