Jody Azzouni was born in NYC. Apart from the philosophy he does, he has a degree in mathematics. He's written extensively--books and articles--in philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, epistemology and metaphysics. "Attributing knowledge: What it means to know something," (Oxford University Press) is his ninth book. This last book focuses on what we might call the positive side of epistemology: the "logic" of attributing knowledge to ourselves and others. The next one, that he's hard at work on at the moment, focuses on what we might call the dark side of epistemology: how we challenge the purported knowledge of ourselves and others--the threat of scepticism. He's optimistic about getting around that.
