Hi! I'm Morgan Thomas. Previously I was Nick Thomas.* I am a philosophy PhD student at the University of
Connecticut. I am interested in philosophy of math, mathematical philosophy, metaphysics, and pure math. Much of my research focuses on naïve set theory and the set-theoretic foundations of category theory. Publications- Approximating Cartesian closed categories in NF-style set theories. Journal of Philosophical Logic, to appear.
- A generalization of the Routley-Meyer semantic framework. Journal of Philosophical Logic 44(4): 411-427, 2015.
- Expressive limitations of naïve set theory in LP and minimally inconsistent LP. Review of Symbolic Logic 7(2): 341-350, 2014.
Work in progress- What does parapsychology tell us about philosophy of mind?
- A description of the automorphism groups of scattered linear orders.
- Approximating Cartesian closed categories in NF-style set theories.
- Set theory via abstraction.
- A Kripke-style semantics for paradox-tolerant, nontransitive intuitionistic logic.
- A conjecture about the interpretation of classical mathematics in naïve set theory. I presented this at the LMU Paraconsistent Reasoning in Science and Mathematics conference.
For those works in progress for which my ownership is not verified by some social means (journal submission, conference presentation, etc.), I use cryptographic proof of existence to give evidence that I originated these papers. Other papers These are papers which I have finished but am not seeking to publish because I think the ideas are better worked out elsewhere.
- Recapturing classical mathematics in paraconsistent set theory.
- Recapturing ZFC in paraconsistent set theory via shrieking.
You may also want to look at my description of what I do when I do philosophy.
