My Research

Jacob W. Archambault is a PhD Candidate and teaching fellow at Fordham University. He wants to know what logic is about. So he asks (and tries to answer) questions about the domain of logic, the relation between the sciences of logic and metaphysics, and about whether logic can or should provide a theory of truth. His current historical focus is on the domain of logic in Thomas Aquinas and Duns Scotus. A concomitant interest of his is the way that shifts in logical structures may have affected theological discourse in the same time period.

Jacob specializes in Medieval Philosophy and Philosophical Logic. His areas of competence include Philosophy of Human Nature, Early Modern Philosophy (especially Leibniz), Phenomenology, and Philosophy of Religion. He reads Latin (including paleography), French, English, and German. He currently resides in New Rochelle with his wife, Amanda, and two children, Elijah and Estelle.
