I guess it's time for re-#introductions !
I'm a philosopher, working in epistemology, metaphysics, phil of mind, and philosophical logic.
I am currently starting a postdoc position with a project on knowledge-how.
also a bit of a programmer and musician, sometimes, not often.
Found out few minutes ago that I was commended for the Warwick Award for Teaching Excellence...
not a bad sensation, not bad at all 😜 😅
OK, thanks for the feedback! I have submitted the second topic.
Thinking of submitting something to #SummerSchool.
1) If we think of understanding in terms of compression, and if we examine how inquiry works, we notice that sometimes formulating a good puzzle requires making things apparently less compressible before making them compressible and thus more understandable. how does this work?
2) philosophers sometimes talk about knowledge of things as well as knowledge of propositions. can we make sense of knowledge of questions also?
Here ye Here ye
If you would like to present at the fediverse's free and absolutely volunteer run and fully interdisciplinary conference going on for its third year?
Well have I got news for you - you can
Please holler at me, DM @SummerSchool any questions you have.
Can't wait to see y'all in class 😎
this was a class where I made the mistake of having my students read way more difficult things than strictly speaking necessary, and I was left with the impression that it had been more of a disaster than anything else. so i'm really glad that at least it worked for some of them.
just got an email from a teacher I TA'ed for in 2017-2018 for a BA level class on Theory of Knowledge, forwarding an email he got from a student. they wanted to add me to the acknowledgements of their masters thesis, because they thought the fact that I made them read female philosophers made a difference for them, and one of the topics we discussed back then (epistemic injustice) was central to their current work. BIG PROUD MOMENT.
Hey everybody, I'm in the process of starting the data collection part of my thesis on Why people are Joining Mastodon. I'm looking for people who would be interested in participating in an interview to share their experiences about their time on the platform. If you want to
participate or have any advice (which I really appreciate) please dm me. Thank you all very much!
