Edward Slowik is a professor in the Department of Philosophy, Winona State University, in Winona, Minnesota. His interests are in the history and philosophy of science, especially the philosophy of space, both contemporary and in the Early Modern period.
After a brief aviation career, Ed went on to receive his B.A. in Philosophy at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and his Ph.D. in Philosophy at Ohio State University. His previous works include, Cartesian Spacetime (Kluwer, 2002), and articles in various philosophy journals. Besides the history and philosophy of the natural sciences, other interests include the realism/anti-realism debate, the philosophy of religion, the philosophy of logic and mathematics, and Analytic philosophy. Ed is a big classical music fan, often frequents bookstores and coffee shops (too often, in fact), and follows Chicago sports teams (but only when they’re winning, which obviously isn’t often enough).
Ed was previously a Visiting Fellow in the 2007-08 year.
