Professional biography

Mark Pinder is a Lecturer in Philosophy at The Open University. He has held this position since September 2018. Prior to this appointment, he has held lecturing positions at the University of Bristol, the University of Birmingham and elsewhere, and a research fellowship supported by The Analysis Trust at the University of Reading.

Mark received his PhD in 2014 from the University of Bristol. The research was funded by the AHRC. His thesis, Meaning and Paradox, explored the implications of various paradoxes of truth [such as the liar paradox] for different theories of linguistic meaning. The core ideas in this work have since been published across two papers in Philosophical Studies.

More recently, Mark has been working in the field of philosophical methodology, with a particular (but not exclusive) interest in conceptual engineering. His work has been published in MindSynthese, and elsewhere.
