Matt Moss

Matt Moss is a Teaching Fellow in the General Education program at Harvard College. He holds a PhD in Philosophy from Columbia University, an MA in French from Princeton University, and a BA magna cum laude in French and Literary Studies from Simon’s Rock College. Matt specializes in the philosophy of language, where his research interests include the semantics of proper names and descriptions, intention-based theories of meaning, speech acts, and vagueness. Before taking the linguistic turn Matt studied early modern philosophy, with a particular focus on the thought and legacy of René Descartes. Prior to philosophy, Matt studied French literature, where his preoccupation was and remains Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time.
