Ned Markosian is a Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Western Washington University. Ned grew up on the mean streets of Montclair, NJ, graduated from Oberlin College (in Ohio), and got his Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Massachusetts.

Ned regularly teaches Intro to Philosophy, Intro to Logic, and various upper level philosophy classes (including classes in metaphysics, his main area of research).

As an undergraduate, Ned did a study abroad program in London, and also took time off from school to bum his way around Europe, with various jobs in places like Greece, France, and Ireland. Later, as a graduate student, Ned took a year off to travel and work in New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, and India. In his professional life, Ned has given lectures in such places as Australia, England, Scotland, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, New Zealand, Sweden, and Spain. He has also traveled to number of other countries with his family. Ned particularly loves Barcelona, and is very excited about the prospect of helping to lead a group of Western students on a study-abroad program there.

When he’s not doing philosophy, Ned enjoys hiking, biking, four-square, and basketball. (He’s bringing his basketball shoes to Barcelona and plans to find a good pickup game there.)
