Aja’s Path

“The more philosophy and math courses I took, the more I realized how much these disciplines have in common. I [used] the mathematical tools I was learning when answering philosophical questions – and I [applied] a philosophical frame of mind to my math coursework.”    

Currently, Aja is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
