Information om forskning och undervisning

Since the 1970s my research has focused on logical and other formal tools applied to problems within the methodology and philosophy of science. I have worked on inductive logic, probabilistic reasoning, theory of truth, truthlikeness, and approximate truth with applications to the structure and dynamics of scientific theories, theory change, theoretical concepts, idealization, confirmation, explanation, abductive inference, and belief revision. I have also written on other topics in philosophical logic, epistemology, philosophy of technology, philosophy of culture, and social philosophy.
