Dr. Mohler joined the Truman faculty in 1999. Dr. Mohler holds a doctorate degree in philosophy from Princeton University, and a bachelor's degree in physics and philosophy from the University of Notre Dame. His area of specialization is epistemology, but he also has strong interests in philosophy of science (including the philosophy of quantum mechanics), metaphysics, logic, and philosophy of religion. His current research addresses the extent to which we can trust our own beliefs in situations where those beliefs are at odds with the beliefs of other individuals we generally trust.
