Susan Haack was educated at Oxford and Cambridge. Formerly a Fellow of New Hall, Cambridge, and later Professor of philosophy at the University of Warwick, she is presently Distinguished Professor in the Humanities, Cooper Senior Scholar in Arts and Sciences, Professor of Philosophy, and Professor of Law at the University of Miami, where she teaches both in the College of Arts and Sciences and in the School of Law.

Her dozen books include Philosophy of Logics, Deviant Logic, Fuzzy Logic: Beyond the Formalism, Manifesto of a Passionate Moderate, Defending Science—Within Reason, Pragmatism, Old and New, Putting Philosophy to Work, Evidence Matters: Science, Proof, and Truth in the Law, and Scientism and its Discontents; and she has also published around 250 articles—not to mention an even larger number of reprints, translations, abridgments, excerpts, etc.—in a wide variety of fora.

Her work has appeared in 18 languages in 36 countries, and has been the subject of four volumes of essays—Susan Haack: A Lady of Distinctions (2007), Susan Haack: Reintegrating Philosophy (2016), a special issue of Estudios filosóficos (2018), and a wonderful Festschrift, Philosophy, the World, Life and the Law (2020). (Another volume of essays on her work is now in preparation.)

Haack has given more than 700 external lectures all around the world—in 30 countries so far. She has received awards for excellence in teaching, in research, and in writing. In 2011, she was awarded the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa by Petri Andreis University, and in 2016, the Ulysses Medal (its highest honor) from University College, Dublin. In 2020, she received the Premio internacional de cultura jurídica from the University of Girona.
