Research:
My major researches are in philosophy of mathematics. See the article ‘Introduction to a Naturalistic Philosophy of Mathematics’ (7) below for a general introduction to my research project in philosophy of mathematics. My other research interests include topics in philosophy of mind and language related to physicalism.
