Anandi Hattiangadi

Pro Futura Scientia Fellow, SCAS.
Professor of Philosophy, Stockholm University

Anandi Hattiangadi received a BA in Philosophy from York University, Toronto; an MA in Philosophy
from the University of Toronto; and a Ph.D. from the Department of History and Philosophy of
Science, University of Cambridge. In 2000, she took up a Research Fellowship at Trinity College,
University of Cambridge, and from 2005 to 2013, she was University Lecturer at the Philosophy
Faculty and Tutorial Fellow in Philosophy at St Hilda’s College, both at the University of Oxford.

Hattiangadi specializes in the philosophy of mind and language, and has research interests in episte-
mology, metaphysics, meta-ethics and philosophy of science. Her publications include Oughts and
Thoughts: Rule Following and the Normativity of Content
(Oxford University Press, 2007); ‘Is
Meaning Normative?’ in Mind and Language (2006); ‘Semantic Normativity in Context’, in New
Waves in the Philosophy of Language
(ed. Sarah Sawyer, 2009); ‘The Love of Truth’, in Studies
in the History and Philosophy of Science
(2010); and ‘The Open Future, Bivalence and Assertion’,
in Philosophical Studies (with Corine Besson, 2013).

While at SCAS, Hattiangadi will work on a new monograph provisionally entitled ‘The Fundamentality
of Intentionality’, in which she will defend the radical view that the intentional and semantic properties
of mental and linguistic representations – their meaning, content, truth or falsity – cannot be reductively
explained in non-semantic terms, and that intentionality must be regarded as fundamental.
