Robert W. Barnard is Associate Professor of Philosophy.

Dr. Barnard joined the faculty of the University of Mississippi in 2000. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Memphis in 2000 and his M.A. in philosophy from the American University in 1994.  Dr. Barnard teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in Epistemology, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind, Logic, Ethics, and Philosophical Analysis. His research is primarily in core areas of metaphysics and epistemology, the metaphysics of logical entities (They really exist!), the nature of truth (mediated correspondence!), and vagueness (it's a form of non-projectability). Barnard also works on the history of analytic philosophy and the experimental philosophy of truth and paradox.
