Roger Clarke

I am a Lecturer in Philosophy at the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics at Queen's University Belfast. My primary research interest is in epistemology.

I received my PhD in philosophy at the University of British Columbia in 2012. My dissertation, Belief in Context (supervisor: Chris Stephens), looks at belief-analogues of various positions in the debate over epistemic contextualism, and the relationship between binary and scaled notions of belief. You can read an abstract and download the final dissertation here.


If you got here via a Google search, there's a good chance one of the first few results was a page titled "Roger Clarke's Definition of Knowledge". For the record, I'm not that Roger Clarke, and I don't have a definition of knowledge.

I'm also not the editor of Post-Communist Economies--that's yet another Roger Clarke. I'm sorry, I can't find his email address either. Good luck! (In case you're mad at me for mentioning that journal & so pushing this page up the search rankings--before I added this paragraph, this page was already the third ghit for "roger clarke"+the name of the university the journal claims their Roger Clarke belongs to. (As far as I can tell, he's not there anymore.))
