This is an experiment in a wiki-based home page. For now, it's my main home page. If I ever decide the experiment is a failure, and shift to another page, I'll say so here and link to the new page.

General

  • Until May 2003 I was a professor of philosophy at Earlham College, where I had taught since 1982. I also taught computer science and law. Although I have left full-time teaching, I am still a research professor at Earlham and still work full-time in the academic universe. My philosophical interests (formerly, my teaching interests) lie chiefly in the history of modern European philosophy, roughly from Montaigne to Nietzsche; Kant and Hegel; the history of western skepticism from Sextus Empiricus to the 20th century; epistemological and ethical issues related to skepticism, such as fictionalism, ideology, self-deception, and the ethics of belief; the logical, epistemological, ethical, and legal problems of self-reference; the metatheory of first-order logic; the ethics of liberty, paternalism, consent, and coercion; criminal law and tort law; and the philosophy of law. My current interests center around policies and technologies that foster research. Apart from the active promotion these policies and technologies, I'm interested in understanding how the internet has changed research and scholarly communication, how it ought to change them, and what it would mean to take full advantage of the internet for the creation and sharing of knowledge.
  • My latest book is Open Access (MIT Press, 2012), which includes an OA page of updates and supplements. Also see my other writings on open access, the backfile of my newsletter (the SPARC Open Access Newsletter), and my publications on deposit in the Harvard institutional repository.

Contacting me

My primary email address is peter.suber@gmail.com.

    • I also use <psuber@cyber.law.harvard.edu> and <psuber@law.harvard.edu>.
    • I can still receive mail at <peters@earlham.edu>, but I no longer use it. If you have it in your address book, please replace it with one of the above. I still subscribed to some long-standing discussion forums under that address, but I'm gradually updating my subscriptions.

Email is the best way to reach me. If you want to contact me by phone, fax, snail mail, or some other way, send me an email and I'll send you the number or address.
