Jacob W. Archambault is currently the Mark and Kathryn Tomasic Research Fellow at Fordham University. His main work is in the history and philosophy of logic, focusing on the development of the concept of formal consequence associated with the 14th century Parisian tradition. His more contemporary research focuses on: the nature, subject, and foundations of logic; ontology; and time and tense.
Jacob specializes in the history and philosophy of logic, medieval philosophy, and metaphysics. His areas of competence include mathematical logic, early modern philosophy (especially Leibniz), and phenomenology, with additional teaching competence in ethics and philosophy of human nature. He reads French, Latin (including manuscripts), and German. He currently resides in New Haven, Connecticut with his wife, Amanda, and two children, Elijah and Estelle.
