Bio/Research

Andrew Irvine received his Ph.D. from the University of Sydney for work in the Department of Traditional and Modern Philosophy on mathematical truth and scientific realism. Since then he has published and lectured on topics in the philosophy of mathematics, the history and philosophy of logic, and the philosophy of law. He is especially interested in the work of the twentieth-century philosopher, essayist and social critic, Bertrand Russell.

A Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia, he regularly teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in a variety of areas.

He has taught in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto and in the Department of Philosophy at Simon Fraser University, and has been a Visiting Fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh and at the Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI) at Stanford University.

He serves on the boards of directors of several charitable organizations and is a past Vice-Chair of the UBC Board of Governors.

His current research includes work on Bertrand Russell, censorship, and the rule of law.

He is especially proud of the research and teaching done by his graduate students and of the work done by members of the Philosophy Students' Association in recent productions of Socrates on Trial.
