"Besson succeeds in showing the appeal of the path that she recommends taking, through what has often seemed to be impassable territory." - Christopher Mole
Corine Besson is Associate Professor in Philosophy at the University of Sussex and Director of the Centre for Logic and Language at the Institute of Philosophy, University of London. Her principal areas of research are epistemology, the philosophy of logic and the philosophy of language.
Corine has been awarded a grant by the Bank of Sweden for her current project, The Foundations of Epistemic Normativity. In this project Corine will be defending a form of epistemological realism called Robust Realism, crucial against the growing disregard for facts and evidence in issues like climate change. Corine is also working on a book, Logic, Reasoning and the Tortoise, to be published by Oxford University Press.
