Antony Eagle


I am a philosopher at the University of Adelaide. I am currently Head of Department, and am program coordinator for the Bachelor of Philosophy, Politics and Economics. I currently serve as Treasurer of the Australasian Association of Philosophy.

My research is mainly in ‘theoretical’ philosophy: metaphysics, epistemology and philosophy of science, philosophy of logic and language, philosophy of probability, and philosophy of physics. I teach in all these areas, and their early modern history (especially Descartes, Cavendish, and Hume). I also supervise research students in these areas: prospective students please see here for more information. My research has been supported by grants from the ARC, Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, AHRC, and the Whiting Foundation.

Before coming to Adelaide, I was from 2004–2013 Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Oxford, and William Kneale Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy at Exeter College, Oxford. Before that, I did my PhD at Princeton, and in the distant past I was an undergraduate at Melbourne.
