Sandy Goldberg (PhD Columbia University, 1995) works in the areas of Epistemology, Philosophy of Language, and Philosophy of Mind. His interests in Epistemology include such topics as social epistemology, reliabilism, the epistemology of testimony, the theory of epistemic justification, epistemic normativity, self-knowledge, and skepticism. In the Philosophy of Language and Mind, his interests center on speech act theory, the semantics of speech and attitude reports, the individuation of the propositional attitudes, and externalist theories of mental content and linguistic meaning.
