Crispin Wright—presently Wardlaw Professor of Logic and Metaphysics at the University of St. Andrews and Global Distinguished Professor at New York University—is without doubt one of the world’s most important living philosophers.His work has ranged over all the main areas of philosophy, including philosophy of language, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mind, epistemology, metaphysics,meta ethics and philosophy of mathematics. Moreover, he has made incisive and influential contributions to many of the most central philosophical topics, such as realism, truth, vagueness, scepticism, rule-following, self-knowledge (the list goes on and on). If that were not enough, he is also a leading scholar on the works of Frege and Wittgenstein.
