Amos Browne

Amos Browne is a PhD candidate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Chicago. His dissertation work is concerned with the ways in which we make sense of the actions and attitudes of other people, focusing on explanations that specify a person's reasons for what they do. His approach to these topics is shaped by a particular interest in the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein, along with other philosophers who were influenced by Wittgenstein's work.

Amos received his B.A. from Oxford University, where he studied Classics and Philosophy. When not working on his dissertation, he can usually be found baking or brewing something in his kitchen. He is also an active member of the University's Iyengar Yoga Club.
