Paul Blaschko

Paul Blaschko

I am a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Notre Dame. My primary areas of interest are epistemology and action theory, and my research focuses on the nature and normative dimensions of deliberative belief formation. I'm also interested in theories of practical reason and value, the philosophy of religion, and medieval philosophy. I'm committed to making philosophy publicly accessible and relevant, and in my teaching and educational projects I emphasize innovative course design, practical relevance, intellectual formation, and classroom transparency. I defended my dissertation in August of 2018 and will receive my PhD from the University of Notre Dame in January of 2019.

Gorata Baitlotli

Gorata Baitlotli

I am from Botswana, I came to the US a few months ago. I love reading about topics which I normally wouldn't be interested in because it helps me think about things that are outside of my interests. The first time I took Philosophy was this semester (GGL), I dreaded having to take a Philo course due to the misconceptions I held towards it. However, I have come to love the different readings we did and the debates. I look forward to digging deeper into philosophy and hopefully figuring out in detail what living philosophical life means to me.

Elijah Grammer

Dialogue Group(s) Hume-ongous

Elijah is a sophomore philosophy and history major from the mysterious kingdom of South Bend, Indiana (or Dunne Hall, depending on whether or not you ask his rector). He's pretty sure his blood is blue and gold, yet can provide no phenomenological evidence to support his assumptions. Spiritually, he is 56 years old and his music tastes (Simon and Garfunkel, the Rolling Stones, basically anything from the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack) reflect this. He is a proud member of the Notre Dame Band, and plays clarinet and tuba (no, they are not even remotely similar). Hobbies include evangelizing Buffy the Vampire Slayer, following Notre Dame sports (and only Notre Dame sports), and geeking out about the most random of things. He can't wait to corrupt the youth with you all this semester!

Favorite philosopher - Nietzsche for the memes, Camus for the dramatics, Kant for the puns you can make with his name
