Aladdin M. Yaqub, Ph.D.
William Wilson Selfridge Professor of Philosophy
Logic, Truth Theory, Philosophy of Mathematics, Metaphysics, Islamic Philosophy and Theology
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.
