Francesca Bordogna is a member of the Program of Liberal Studies and of the History and Philosophy of Science Program.

She is the author of William James at the Boundaries: Philosophy, Science, and the Geography of Knowledge (University of Chicago Press, 2008). She is currently working on a book on a group of early twentieth-century European philosophers who transformed the philosophy of pragmatism into a philosophical, scientific, and political way of life.
