Szymon Bogacz

Hey, my name is Szymon and I’m a PhD student in the ANU School of Philosophy. I did my MA in philosophy in the Institute of Philosophy, Jagiellonian University.

I work in Buddhist philosophy, logic and philosophy of logic, and epistemology. In my thesis I analyse what Dharmakīrti says about contradictions and I develop an epistemic approach to the liar paradox.

​I also work on the epistemology of disagreement, analyticity, and the relationship between logical validity and rules of belief change. I have further interests in the history of Buddhist philosophy and religion in India and China.
