Profile

Professor Wright’s research interests lie mainly in Explanation, Evidence, and Argument, though these topics have lately led him into exploring the intersection of the Analytic and Continental traditions. He is the author of Teleological Explanations and three texts on analytical reading. In recent years he has written articles on argument and understanding, the deductive ideal, justification and discovery, the normativity of the notions of function and goal, and the relation between reasoning and explaining. He is currently working on a manuscript tracing the roots of the concept of a reason in agency. During this period he has taught undergraduate courses on early analytic philosophy and on reasoning and graduate seminars on explanation, Wittgenstein, Thomas Kuhn, and the concept of a reason.
