Matthieu Remacle

Biography:  

I hold two BA’s from McGill, where I first studied English literature and then philosophy. My main focus is medieval Arabic philosophy (especially al-Farabi), as well as Ancient and philosophy of language. These interests converge, for instance, in the debate over ‘logic vs grammar’ in 10th-c. Baghdad, and in Farabi’s theory of signification as a response to that debate. I cut my philosophical teeth studying medieval Jewish philosophy, and hope to remain active in that field as well. Finally, I maintain a steadfast love for good food and bad puns.
