Trent Dougherty is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Baylor University, where he is also Fellow and Faculty Associate in the Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion. Dr.  Dougherty’s education includes: (MA, Missouri, 2004, Jon Kvanvig Director) took up the Dean’s Fellowship at University of Rochester in the Fall of 2005 to work on his PhD with Rich Feldman and Earl Conee in Epistemology, Henry Kyburg in Probability Theory, and Ed Wierenga in Philosophy Of Religion.  He was previously Kline Chair Research Assistant at the University of Missouri (2001-2004) where he managed the Kline Workshops.

His main research interest is the normativity of rationality, especially the relationship between conceptions of epistemic rationality and pragmatic rationality.  This encompasses topics ranging from virtue epistemology to bayesian epistemology, especially the conceptual foundations.  The project is pursued along with parallel investigations into the semantics of probability and with an eye toward considering the rationality of religious and scientific beliefs.

Dr. Dougherty has published articles and book reviews in such journals as Religious Studies, Religious Studies Review, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, Philosophia Christi, The Review of Metaphysics, Faith and Philosophy, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Synthese, Southern Journal of Philosophy, European Journal of Philosophy, and the European Journal of Philosophy of Religion.  Academically, he most enjoys the interaction of presenting and commenting upon papers at conferences and by blogging.

His favorite activities—simpliciter—are doing anything outside—hiking, camping, climbing, biking, skiing, kayaking—with his wife, Sarah, and four kids: Fiona, Annabelle, John Paul “Jeep”, and Sam.  He regularly competes in triathlons, but likes mountain biking the best right now.  He has recently developed a passion for gardening and cooking what he gardens up.
