Glen Helman has taught at Wabash since 1986. His research has concerned the structure and interpretation of formal proofs. In addition to logic, his teaching tends to be centered on those parts of philosophy — philosophy of language and philosophy of science — that have been the focus of attention for the “analytic” tradition in philosophy of the last century. He has also regularly taught another “philosophy of,” the philosophy of law, and frequently also the philosophy of art or aesthetics.
