My book Theoretical Virtues in Science has been assessed by James Ladyman and Stathis Psillos as a ‘dissertation’ for the higher doctoral degree in philosophy (“doktorat”; equivalent to the German “habilitation”). The public defense will be on April 9th.
Four new paper drafts (see Paper):
- Putting philosophical expertise to the test
- Armchair Physics and the Method of cases
- Explanation by Structural Necessitation
- Theoretical virtues: do scientists think what philosophers think they ought to think?
The book on Linguistic Intuitions, which I co-edited and contributed a chapter to, can now be pre-ordered on the OUP website:
