Stephen Yablo


Stephen Yablo

Stephen Yablo is a philosopher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He specializes in the philosophy of logic, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and philosophy of language.

In 1993, he published a short paper showing that a liar-like paradox can be generated without self-reference. His 1992 paper "Mental Causation" was a significant work in the philosophy of mind. In recent years, Yablo has gained attention for work concerning mathematical fictionalism.

He is married to fellow MIT philosopher Sally Haslanger.
