    Willingness to take 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.
