Sam Baron

Dr. Baron's present research focuses on the connection between key topics in the philosophy of mathematics concerning mathematical ontology and topics in the philosophy of time concerning temporal ontology.

A central focus of this research is the role of truth-making and non-causal explanation in arguments both for and against particular ontological views.

Dr. Baron is currently investigating the role of non-causal explanation in the indispensability argument for the existence of mathematical objects, as well as timelessness in theories of quantum gravity and timelessness in metaphysics more generally.
