I apply formal epistemology to the philosophy of science in general and philosophy of medicine (mainly pharmacology) in particular. I am interested in a wide variety of problems, approaches and techniques. Very broadly speaking: I am interested in uncertainty and how to cope with it in general and in particular.
My background is in mathematics (inductive logic, uncertain reasoning) and in information systems (multi-agent systems).
The special issue on evidence amalgamation in the sciences with Synthese (see editing for details) is coming along nicely. The first eleven accepted papers are now out, contributions are by: Baetu, Bertolaso & Sterpetti, Claveau & Grenier, Danks & Pils, Frank, Heesen et al, Holman, Kao, Wilde and Parkkinen, Vieland & Chang and Wüthrich & Steele.
We want to call for contributions which address the following topics [broadly construed]
– reliability, its uses and models in the sciences and methodologies (e.g., empirical, theoretical, social)
– reliability, its uses and models in the philosophy of these sciences to include, among other approaches, formal epistemology
– traditional main-stream approaches to reliability
– reliability and the replication crisis
– reliable inference.
Submissions will be due some time in autumn/winter this year.
