About Curtis Brown

I have always been interested in philosophy, although I didn't immediately realize this. As an undergraduate at St. Olaf College, I first thought that I would major in English, but found that my interest in literary interpretation led me to aesthetics and the philosophy of language.
Later I planned to major in sociology, but my interest in sociological theory and methodology led me to the philosophy of science. Eventually I ended up where I belonged, in the philosophy department.
My interests continue to be interdisciplinary, with special interests in computer science and cognitive science. One of the great things about teaching philosophy, as I once heard the philosopher Arthur Fine point out, is that if you become interested in a subject X, no matter what X might be, you can justify studying it by declaring that you are working on the Philosophy of X.
