Author Biography


Tim Button is a Senior Lecturer, and a Fellow of St John's College, at the University of Cambridge. His first book, The Limits of Realism (OUP 2013) explores the relationship between words and world; between semantics and scepticism. His main research interests lie in meta(meta)physics, logic, mathematics, and language. In 2014 he received a Philip Leverhulme Prize.

Sean Walsh is Associate Professor in the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine. He did his graduate work in philosophy and mathematics at the University of Notre Dame, where he received a PhD in Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics, and subsequently worked for two years at Birkbeck, University of London.
