Matthew Heeney

Welcome to my site.

I am currently Assistant Professor (of Philosophy) in the Department of History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies, Nazarbayev University.

My research intersects the Philosophy of Action, the Philosophy of Mind, and Ethics. I am especially interested in the interconnections between reasoning (inferring to a conclusion), intentional agency, and moral responsibility.

You can read more on the Research page.

I received my PhD (2020) in Philosophy from Columbia University in the City of New York. From 2020–2022, I served as Core Lecturer of Contemporary Civilization in Columbia's Core Curriculum. Before commencing my doctoral studies, I received an MA (2012) from San Francisco State University and a BA (2008) from the University of California, Los Angeles (all in Philosophy).
