Professional Bio

I’m working on evolution of conventions and the social contract now. I’m also interested in inductive logic, decision theory, rational deliberation, the metaphysics of logical atomism, causality, and Truth.

The table of contents, introduction and first chapter of my new book can be previewed here.

Bill Harms has a simulator for the dynamics of some of the games in Evolution of the Social Contract: it can be found by clicking here.

Jason McKenzie Alexander has a simulator for many evolutionary game theoretic models of interest to philosophers and social scientists. It can be found by clicking here.

Brian Skyrms’ presidential address for the Philosophy of Science Association can be found here.
