Joshua Blanchard

Joshua Blanchard is a doctoral candidate in philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he is writing a dissertation in metaethics. In philosophy of religion, he is especially interested in how Jewish texts outside the traditional canon of analytic philosophy can address contemporary philosophical problems. For example, he recently published a paper in the European Journal for Philosophy of Religion applying some of the writings of Abraham Joshua Heschel to the problem of divine hiddenness. He received an MA in philosophy from Brandeis University, and a BA from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, where he double majored in Philosophy and Ancient Civilizations & Biblical Studies.
