Baptiste Le Bihan holds a PhD from the University of Rennes and a habilitation from the University of Bern. He is the PI of a Swiss NSF Ambizione project  at the University of Geneva aiming at building a new field, the metaphysics of quantum gravity.

After a PhD in metaphysics of time at the University of Rennes, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Space and Time after Quantum Gravity project (conducted at the University of Illinois at Chicago and at the University of Geneva) and then a research associate in the project To and Fro: Scientific Metaphysics at Physics’s Frontiers in Geneva. I am also a member of the Geneva Symmetry Group. Most of my research interests are in theoretical philosophy (metaphysics, philosophy of science, philosophy of physics), mainly on time and space, modality, mereology and material objects but I also occasionally branch out in philosophy of mind and comparative philosophy. My books and a selection of articles are accessible below; all my articles are listed and accessible via a dedicated page in the menu.
