I am a graduate student in Philosophy at Yale University. I joined the department in 2014, after completing an M.Phil in Ancient Philosophy (Classics) at Cambridge University and a B.A. in Philosophy and Classics at Pomona College.

My interests are diverse, although centered in the history of philosophy. I am mostly interested in questions about logic, mind, and metaphysics. Some of the philosophers who most interest me are Aristotle, Hobbes, Spinoza, Hume, Frege, and the early Wittgenstein. My dissertation’s title is “Spinoza’s Metaphysics of Ideas: Deflating Necessity and Causation Through the Identity of Intellect and Will.”

On this page you can find my CV, abstracts for some of my research, and some teaching resources. I can be best contacted by email at daniel.moerner@yale.edu. Follow me on Twitter @DanielMoerner. I also maintain an occasional (non-philosophical) blog at dmoerner.wordpress.com.
