research overview

  • Professor Forbes's main areas of expertise are in philosophy of language and metaphysics. In philosophy of language he is primarily interested in using type-logical methods to extend event semantics to intensional discourse. Secondarily, he works on the semantics of vague expressions and the pragmatics of logical constants. In metaphysics his main efforts concern the application of modal logic to issues involving identity and possibility.
