Author Biography

Graham Priest is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, and Boyce Gibson Professor Emeritus at the University of Melbourne. He is known for his work on non-classical logic, particularly in connection with dialetheism, on the history of philosophy, and on Buddhist philosophy.

Ricki Bliss is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Lehigh University, USA. Prior to taking up this post she was a visiting Lecturer at Otago University, New Zealand and a post-doctoral research fellow at Kyoto University, Japan. She is also the recipient of a research grant from the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung, which she took up at the University of Hamburg, Germany. She works primarily in analytic metaphysics on issues associated with metaphysical dependence, fundamentality and the over-arching structure of reality. Her work is strongly historically oriented and draws on both Western and non-Western traditions.
