Matt Bedke is a professor of philosophy at the University of British Columbia. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in 2007, and he joined the UBC Philosophy department in 2009. He is particularly interested in the meaning of normative language and the psychology of normative thought (oughts and shoulds and reasons and goods). One central question that shapes his current work is whether normative thought and language purports to represent any normative properties or facts. He thinks not.
