Torfinn Huvenes

Associate Professor
Department of Philsophy, University of Bergen



I am an associate professor in philosophy at the University of Bergen. Before I took up my current position, I was an associate professor at Umeå University. I have also previously been a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature at the University of Oslo and the Arché Philosophical Research Centre at the University of St Andrews.

I obtained my PhD in 2011 as a double-badge degree from the University of St Andrews and the University of Oslo. I did my PhD under the supervision of Herman Capplen and Jonathan Schaffer.

Most of my research to date has focused on issues concerning disagreement, but I am interested in a wide range of topics in philosophy of language, epistemology, metaethics, metaphysics, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of science.

If you have any questions or comments about my research, please see my contact details below.
