Welcome to my web site. I am a professor in the Philosophy Department at Princeton University. I began teaching at Princeton as an assistant professor in the Fall of 1997, after receiving my PhD from M.I.T.'s Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. Before returning to Princeton for the Fall semester of 2005, I was an assistant (2001-2004) then associate (2004-2005) professor in the Sage School of Philosophy of Cornell University. (See my CV.) My research and teaching interests fall mainly in the areas of philosophy of language, metaphysics, philosophical logic, and philosophical linguistics.

Name Change:

Please note that I now use my married name professionally and publish under the name "Delia Graff Fara" ("Fara, Delia Graff"), using the "Judith Jarvis Thomson"/"Elizabeth Cady Stanton"/"Hillary Rodham Clinton"/"Ruth Barcan Marcus" convention ("Fara" as the last name, "Graff" as the middle name), and will use "Professor Fara" for formal purposes.

For citation of works published under the name "Delia Graff", I prefer that they be cited in the following way:

  • For full-name references, use 'Delia Graff Fara';
  • For last-name-only references, use 'Fara';
  • For in-text citations, use 'Fara', as in '(Fara 2000)';
  • In the bibliography, alphabetize under 'Fara' and include a note saying what name the thing was originally published under, as in:
    Fara, Delia Graff: 2000, "Shifting Sands: An Interest-Relative Theory of Vagueness," Philosophical Topics 28: 45-81. Originally published under the name "Delia Graff".
