Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I would be delighted to discuss the possibility of supervising PhD students who have interests in any of the following areas: - General Philosophy of Science Anything to do with evidence (prediction, confirmation, explanation), pragmatic features of theory choice (‘loveliness’ etc.), (ir)rationality of science, holism. Scientific realisms: abundance-theories vs. minimalism, fictionalism and Inference to the Best Explanation. Science as social knowledge. ‘Scientism’ and anti-science attitudes. Natural kinds and social kinds. - Philosophy of Mind and Psychology Mental fictionalism / eliminativism Inference and reasoning - Quine, Naturalism and Naturalised Epistemology Quine’s naturalism, Quine’s holism, Quine’s criterion of ontological commitment Indispensability arguments - Methodology (Anti-)psychologism in philosophy, in epistemology, in logic. Philosophical methods: a priori knowledge, intuitions.

If you made any changes in Pure these will be visible here soon.
