2022 Philo Club Poster


In the Stony Brook Philosophy Department, philosophy is more an activity than an artifact, more a collective vocation than a solitary pursuit.


Welcome New Faculty Member
Joseph Lemelin

J LemelinJoseph Lemelin’s research focuses on philosophical implications of digital technologies with a particular emphasis on artificial intelligence. He draws from critical theory, philosophy of mind, and the history of philosophy to raise questions about the ways technology reconfigures orienting concepts according to which understand ourselves.

At Stony Brook,  Prof. Lemelin will be teaching a range of courses, from the history of philosophy to philosophy of technology and bioethics. He will also be offering courses in the university’s new Digital Intelligence Program, which combines critical research in the humanities with hands-on computer programming projects.
