Andrei A. Buckareff

Professor of Philosophy; Co-Director of the Cognitive Science Program


I teach courses in metaphysics, philosophy of mind, epistemology, and cognitive science. My research these days is primarily focused on applying a neo-Aristotelian ontology of causal powers to address various problems in the metaphysics of science and to address some puzzles in the metaphysics of mind and agency along with developing a pantheistic conception of the divine. When not doing philosophy, I enjoy brewing beer, hiking, mountain biking, skateboarding, snowboarding, vegan cooking, and gaming with my son. I live in Ulster County with my spouse, son, and four cats.
