I am a Lecturer in Philosophy at UCL. I used to be a Senior Lecturer at Cambridge.
I mostly work on logic, mathematics, language, and metanphysics (for n > 0). Right now, I am mostly thinking about solipsism and the self, theoretical equivalence, and the universal set.
I care about two big questions:
Sometimes I ask these questions about normal words, like ‘dog’, or ‘table’, or whatever. Sometimes I ask the same questions about less normal words, like ‘number’, or ‘real number’, or ‘power set’. Either way, the questions are really hard. To deal with them, I can’t just think about the words, or what they’re meant to be about; I also have to think about what we are like. So I also have to ask:
And that’s another huge, weird question.
[I made this with just the ten hundred most used words.]
