Scott Campbell has a BA and an MA from the University of Tasmania, and a PhD from the University of New South Wales (in Sydney). He has previously taught at the University of New South Wales, St Catherine’s College Oxford, University College London, Kings College London and Birkbeck College London. In 1998-99 he was Visiting Fellow in the Philosophy Programme, School of Advanced Study at the University of London.

His current research is focused on the psychological criterion of personal identity. He is preparing a defence of logical probability, inspired by the work of David Stove and Donald Cary Williams, and working on solutions to Humean inductive scepticism and Goodman’s ‘grue’ problem. He has also been working on conceptual issues in risk, which has been funded by a Leverhulme grant. He was awarded an AHRC Research Leave grant for 2008.
