Professor Frise specializes in epistemology and the philosophy of mind. He especially enjoys bringing the cognitive psychology of memory to bear in these areas. Currently, he is writing a book for Cambridge University Press on the epistemology of memory, an "Epistemological Problems of Memory" entry (co-authored) for the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, a chapter on knowing the past from episodic memory for the forthcoming Current Controversies in Philosophy of Memory (Routledge), and a handful of other papers on memory or epistemology. He has fun teaching not only these areas but also Ancient Greek philosophy, biomedical ethics, digital ethics, logic, and the philosophy of religion. Before joining Santa Clara University, Professor Frise was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Baylor University and a Dissertation Fellow at Saint Louis University. He has published in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Philosophical Studies, The Philosophical Quarterly, Synthese, American Philosophical Quarterly,Pacific Philosophical Quarterly, and Erkenntnis.
