Robert Long


Robert grew up in Augusta, GA and earned a B.A. in Social Studies, with a focus on American religion, from Harvard. He is especially interested in problems in philosophy of mind, cognitive science, and philosophy of religion.

Robert has written for The New Republic, The American Conservative, and the Harvard Political Review, and he's always looking for ways to make philosophy accessible to a general audience.

Robert is the Graduate Student Representative for 2014. The GSR is elected by the graduate students in the department. The role of the GSR is to facilitate communication between the graduate students and other people at Brandeis, particularly the faculty, staff, and undergraduate students of Philosophy. The GSR also coordinates activities among graduate students, including the Graduate Student Speaker Series.
