Bio:

Has recently published papers in Journal of Philosophy, Synthese, Erkenntinis, History of Philosophy Quarterly, American Philosophical Quarterly (July, 2002 and January, 2004), Dialectica, Metaphilosophy, Philosophical Studies, Acta Analytica, Philosophia, and Mind (book review). Becker's article, "Reliabilism," appears in The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

Prof. Becker and Tim Black have published a collection of new, state‑of‑the‑art essays on the sensitivity principle in epistemology. The volume was published with Cambridge UP in the Summer of 2012. Further details here:

Prof. Becker's book, Epistemology Modalized, which includes critical discussions of extant versions of modal epistemologies and a defense of the thesis that knowledge is reliably formed, sensitive true belief, was published by Routledge in 2007. The book is now available in paperback, here and here.
