Nicholas K. Jones’ research interests lie at the intersection of metaphysics with the philosophy of logic and language, especially anything connected with objecthood. He is currently working on the metaphysics of higher-order quantification and applications of higher-order resources within metaphysics.
He arrived at the University of Birmingham as a Birmingham Research Fellow in 2013, and has been Senior Lecturer there since 2017. Before joining Birmingham, he was a Fitzjames Research Fellow at Merton College, University of Oxford, and Jacobsen Research Fellow at KCL and the Institute of Philosophy, following a PhD at Birkbeck, University of London. He has been a Visiting Scholar at MIT, a Visiting Fellow on the ConceptLab project at the University of Oslo, and received the Sanders Prize for Metaphysics in 2012. He is from North Derbyshire.
