Who is Ben?

Ben Burgis

Philosophy Professor & Author

Ben Burgis is the author of “Give Them An Argument: Logic for the Left.” He has a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Miami. His academic specialization has to do with logical paradoxes about self-reference, but these days he spends most of his time exposing the logical fallacies of right-wing reactionaries (and technocratic centrists) and arguing for democratic socialism. He’s a weekly columnist for Jacobin Magazine, a twice-a-month columnist for Arc Digital Media, and the co-host of the Dead Pundits Society. He also does a regularly segment on The Michael Brooks Show called The Debunk and he writes two essays a week for Patreon subscribers.
