About Rachel Rudolph
Assistant Professor

I work mainly in philosophy of language and metaethics. I am especially interested in experiential language (sentences like "this food is tasty" or "this dress looks blue"), which we use to communicate at once about the objective world and about our subjective experience. I have also been thinking about how speakers negotiate linguistic conventions, and about the relationship between moral language and moral metaphysics.

My recent publications include "Talking about appearances: the roles of evaluation and experience in disagreement" in Philosophical Studies, "A closer look at the perceptual source" in Proceedings of Sinn und Bedeutung, and "Against Conventional Wisdom" in Philosophers' Imprint (co-authored with Alex Kocurek and Ethan Jerzak).
