Professor Barry Loewer has been a professor in the Philosophy Department at Rutgers since 1989. Prior to that I taught at University of South Carolina and the University of Michigan. His BA is from Amherst College and Ph.D. from Stanford University. His research is mostly in philosophy of science especially philosophy of physics. Professor Loewer has written on the foundations of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and cosmology and on the metaphysics of laws and objective chance. He co-directed a large Templeton grant in Philosophy of Cosmology a few years ago. He lives in Nolita in Manhattan with his wife Katalin Balog (also a philosopher at Rutgers Newark) and their cat Loki, and during Covid Lockdown, their son Milan, who is a junior at Columbia University.
