Daniel Z. Korman



I am an associate professor in the philosophy department at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Much of my research has been devoted to the defense of a conservative metaphysics of material objects, according to which our natural, intuitive judgments about which objects there are and aren't are more or less correct. Other topics of interest include the philosophy of perception, abstract artifacts, Locke on substratum, the nature and status of intuition, debunking arguments, and anything having anything to do with Naming and Necessity.
