DAVID BARNETT (NYU, Ph.D. 2003) joined the CU department in 2005 and works mainly in philosophy of language and metaphysics, but also has interests in philosophy of mind.

Professor Barnett has written on the nature of indeterminacy and vagueness, the necessity of origins thesis, the theory of stuffs, scientific essentialism, the nature of conscious beings, and the semantics of conditional statements. He is currently working on developing and defending a suppositional theory of counterfactual conditionals. 

Outside philosophy, his interests include mountain biking, trail running, telemark skiing, and backpacking.
