My name is Rory Harder. I am currently completing my PhD in philosophy at the University of Toronto, with a defense expected in March 2022. My main research interests are in the philosophy of language and mind. I am concerned with linguistic communication, and more generally the various ways in which we interact.

Here is my CV.
