    Research Interests
          • Broadly construed, I work on issues in logic, epistemology, philosophy of science, and education.  Some of my more specific interests include the nature of explanation, the relationship between knowledge and belief, the evolution of language, logical and epistemic paradoxes, aims and methods of educational assessment, psychopathology, and comparative anatomy of prefrontal cortex.
