I’m Susanne Bobzien. I used to be professor of philosophy at Yale and have just been appointed to a Senior Research Fellowship at All Souls College, Oxford – my dream job come true. In my research I focus on vagueness, ancient logic and determinism and freedom. I love being a philosopher, because it suits my contrasting desires of spending time by myself, dissecting intricate problems, and spending time with others, debating and sharing ideas. When I don’t do philosophy, I play the piano, absorb the colour, texture, furriness, sound and scent of nature and art, and get involved in the odd social and political causes. The photo was taken by Nathan in May 2012 in Zaragoza, on the way to a workshop on vagueness in Pamplona.
