Jeff Watson


I teach Philosophy at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.

My Ph.D. research involves an attempt to clarify the concept of Emergence, both as it relates to the Metaphysics of Mind and as it relates to the Sciences, including the Social Sciences. I also have interests in moral philosophy. You're welcome to see a few  projects I'm currently working on.

I am primarily dedicated to teaching. I find that working through a philosophical problem with students is usually more interesting than just presenting them with established views. They're more engaged by the interaction, and I get to learn a lot from them in the process. Learn more about how I teach.

You can read a few musings about philosophy (and other topics) on my Blog.
