My Name is Alex Madva

I am an Assistant Professor at Cal Poly Pomona.  After receiving my PhD in Philosophy from Columbia University in October 2012, I was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at UC-Berkeley (2012-14) and a Visiting Assistant Professor at Vassar College (2014-15).  My work centers on the questions that research in social psychology raises for philosophy of mind, philosophy of race and feminism, and applied ethics (especially prejudice and discrimination).  I'm also interested in philosophy of social science, moral & political philosophy, phenomenology & existentialism, and philosophical themes in classic western literature.
