Teaching Assistant Professor

Graham Clay works broadly on the history of philosophy and its import. However, his primary focus is on Hume’s positions on philosophical argumentation and the processes by which beliefs are generated and stabilized through argumentation, as well as the ways in which we can leverage an improved understanding of these processes to accelerate philosophical progress. He also has interests in philosophical applications of artificial intelligence. Most recently, he was an Irish Research Council GOI Postdoctoral Fellow at University College Dublin. His doctoral dissertation, which he defended in 2019 at the University of Notre Dame, concerned Hume’s account of knowledge. He did his undergraduate work in philosophy and economics here at UNC-CH.
