Spencer M. Smith

Florida State University, BA, MA

I received my BA in Philosophy & Psychology and my MA in Philosophy from Florida State University, and am now pursuing a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame. I'm interested in a number of issues of first-order metaphysics, the natures of morality and normativity more broadly, whether theism or naturalism is true, and—increasingly—a variety of issues of meta-metaphysics. If I'm not doing philosophy, I'm probably spending time with my dog, Blue, or with friends or family, or else am reading, watching, or listening to something, playing some game, or doing something physical. I'm also a semi-avid concert- and movie-goer when there aren't pandemics afoot.
