Biography:

Jack’s primary research interests lie in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and early modern Indian philosophy. He focuses on engaging in cross-cultural work in analytic epistemology and philosophy of mind which draws upon the work of early modern New Reason (Navya-Nyāya) philosophers, especially 17th century philosophers such as Gadādhara Bhaṭṭācārya, Mahādeva Puṇatāmakara and Jayarāma Nyāyapañcānana. He has further interests in historical work, especially concerning New Reason philosophy, but also concerning the history of epistemology broadly. Besides his primary research interests, he maintains strong interests in metametaphysics, propositions, Indo-Tibetan Buddhist philosophy, and the self.
