About the Author

William A. Bauer is Associate Teaching Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at North Carolina State University. He has published articles in journals including Acta Analytica, Erkenntnis, and Science and Engineering Ethics.


'Bauer's monograph marks a significant and original contribution to the rapidly expanding literature on dispositionalism. Well-informed, clearly written, and composed with an eye to interdisciplinary linkages (for instance to information theory and philosophy of religion), this work deserves a wide audience across multiple philosophical sub-disciplines.' Travis Dumsday, Concordia University
