Ph.D. Princeton, 1987. Doug Jesseph joined the Philosophy Department faculty at USF in 2008 after several years as professor of philosophy at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. His research is in the history of early modern philosophy (17th and 18th centuries), with a special focus on the philosophy of mathematics in that period.
