Peter P Tan

Hello! I am an Assistant Professor at Fordham University.

I work at the intersections of the general philosophy of science with contemporary metaphysics and epistemology.

My current work focuses on a mixture of the following three topics: the relationship between scientific representation and a scientific metaphysics, characterizing scientific representation more broadly, and the epistemology of computational science.

I have diverse teaching interests that extend beyond philosophy of science, metaphysics, and epistemology. I'm especially interested in teaching the classical Chinese philosophers, as well as developing creative new ways to teach logic courses.
