The Department has special strengths in the areas of
- Ethics and Political Philosophy
- Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science
- Philosophy of Language
but faculty members have a wide range of research interests in areas throughout contemporary analytic philosophy, including metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of science, the history of philosophy, artificial intelligence, and decision, game, and social choice theory. Many members of our Department reach across disciplines to work with colleagues from other excellent departments and schools at Maryland, such as Computer Science, Economics, Government and Politics, Linguistics, Medicine, Neuroscience, and Psychology.
