Isaac Wilhelm


I am a Ph.D. candidate in the philosophy department at Rutgers University. While pursuing my doctorate in philosophy, I earned an M.S. from the Rutgers mathematics department.

My research centers around articulating, proposing, and defending theories of the non-fundamental. Much of that research is in metaphysics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of physics. The rest is in feminist philosophy, formal epistemology, logic, philosophy of biology, and philosophy of mathematics.

Before coming to philosophy, I worked as a filmmaker in Chicago: I made documentaries about people, parks, and diners. These days, in addition to philosophy, I like taking pictures, watching movies, reading and writing poems, teaching outside of the academy, and hiking.
