E-mail ssmoss@umich.edu

​Professor Sarah Moss is an associate professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Michigan. She earned a BA in mathematics from Harvard University and a BPhil in philosophy from Oxford University, where she studied as a Marshall Scholar. She also holds a PhD in linguistics and philosophy from MIT. Professor Moss works primarily in epistemology and the philosophy of language, and often on questions at the intersection of these subfields.

In her book Probabilistic Knowledge (OUP, April 2018), Professor Moss defends the revisionary thesis that partial beliefs can constitute knowledge in just the same way that full beliefs can. This thesis has surprising consequences for traditional theories of mind and language, as well as for questions concerning racial profiling, the definition of reasonable doubt, and the law's hostility to merely statistical evidence.
