imageAnoop Gupta holds a BA and MA in philosophy from McMaster University, in Canada, as well as a PhD with a focus on the philosophy of mathematics, from the University of Ottawa, Canada. From the University of Windsor, also in Canada, he holds a BEd and MEd (in administration). He is presently enrolled in Windsor’s Joint PhD in Cognition and Learning, working on the social cognitive dimensions of meaning making in algebra and the visual arts.

He is interested in developing as far as plausible a realist account of truth informed by recent advances in cognitive science. With our understanding of neural processes, behavior, and cognition, He investigates the concept and formation of truths, neurometaphysics. He is interested in realism and cognitive behaviorism, that is, an account of the self that incorporates both cognitive and social insights, in relation to belief formation.

Making connections to the neurosciences, culture, and history, He studies the relationship between mind and truth. Further, he writes on socio-political topics such as the environment or India. His interest in realism overlaps with his concerns the neurosciences and social justice, but is not exhausted by them. He has published one book and several articles in three countries.
