Dr Anthony Robert James Fisher

Role: Postdoctoral Research Fellow




Dr Anthony Fisher is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Manchester. He is part of the AHRC-funded project The Age of Metaphysical Revolution: David Lewis and His Place in the History of Analytic Philosophy.

Before coming to the University of Manchester (again) he was the Bader Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy at Queen’s University. While he was there he researched the philosophy of Donald C. Williams (1899-1983), with a focus on Williams' empirical conception of metaphysics, ontology of tropes, cosmology of time, and historical impact on the revival of metaphysics.

Previously at the University of Manchester he held a Newton International Fellowship from the British Academy. His project involved a detailed study of the metaphysics of Samuel Alexander (1859-1938) using the Samuel Alexander Papers held at the John Rylands Library. See the project website and the 'Heritage Heroes’ video on Samuel Alexander.

Before that he was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Dalhousie University (2012-2013) and received his PhD from Syracuse University in 2012.
