My areas of research are logic, truth theory, philosophy of mathematics, metaphysics, and Islamic philosophy and theology. Furthermore, for the past several years I have been cultivating wide expertise in the histories and philosophical theologies of the world’s monotheistic traditions. I came to philosophy from a background in mathematics. I am originally from Baghdad, Iraq, having earned a B.S. in mathematics from the University of Baghdad in 1979. I did my graduate studies at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, earning two M.A. degrees in mathematics and philosophy and a Ph.D. in philosophy in 1991. Before coming to Lehigh University in 2006, I taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Florida State University, Luther College, and the University of New Mexico. To date, I have published four books on truth theory (Oxford University Press), Islamic philosophical theology (University of Chicago Press), logical theory (Broadview Press), and metalogic (Broadview Press). I am currently working on a new book project that is under contract with Brill. The project is an annotated translation of Qur'anic exegeses of six early Mu'tazilite masters.
