Michael Jacovides received a Ph.D. in philosophy from UCLA in 1997. He came to Purdue in 2001 after having held one-year jobs at Yale, University of Massachusetts, and University of Virginia. He is the author of Locke’s Image of the World and various philosophical papers, mostly on the British Empiricists. He is currently working on a book on Hume on laws and causes, a project for which he received an encouraging grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Much of his research is focused on the connection between the history of science and the history of philosophy in the early modern period, but he has wide philosophical interests. He thinks that philosophy’s greatest gifts to humanity are logic, ethics, the scientific method, and compatibilism.
