Philosophy Department

Ron Bombardi

Professor and Chair



Ron Bombardi earned his Ph.D. in philosophy from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1984. With his dissertation on the empirical foundations of clinical psychology, he initiated a series of interdisciplinary studies in the philosophy of modern science that still characterizes the tenor of his contemporary work. Capitalizing on extensive scholarship in the history and philosophy of Western science and mathematics, Bombardi has advanced curriculum development in the discipline while teaching at MTSU with the creation of state-of-the-art courses in philosophical psychology and the philosophy of music. Bombardi is an active web-designer who routinely utilizes Internet resources in his teaching and scholarship; his hypertext edition of Spinoza's Ethics has received international acclaim. His current projects are focused on topics in neurophilosophy.
