Erik Jensen earned a B.A. in classics and philosophy at Ohio Wesleyan University and an M.A. in humanities and intellectual history at The University of Texas at Dallas. In the broadest terms, his philosophical research interests encompass the history of philosophy (analytic, continental, and non-Western), American pragmatism, epistemology, philosophy of language, and the philosophy of science. Erik also studies classical philology and cultural criticism, with allied interests in comparative literature and ethnic studies.
In addition to presenting a paper on the epistemic limits of Quine's Underdetermination Thesis at the 2012 Research, Art and Writing symposium, he has recently co-authored a forthcoming review of The Cambridge Companion to Dewey in the journal Mind, Culture, and Activity.
When not pursuing academic research, Erik enjoys international cinema, poetry, jazz, and the plastic arts.
