Personal profile


My current research focuses on the work of Otto Neurath and Rudolf Carnap, and explores their respective projects of providing a meta-theory for science. I am attempting to demonstrate the compatibility of their two projects as a form of naturalized epistemology which retains a conventional analytic/synthetic distinction, and is therefore distinct from more familiar Quine-inspired approaches to epistemological naturalism.
