My non-academic interests include reading, playing folk music (especially Scottish & Irish styles on the mandolin), films and TV series, video games, walking, discovering new languages, and vinyl collecting.
My philosophical positions are close to the analytic tradition, especially Quine‘s idea that a solid epistemology on a continuum with the sciences is desirable in the treatment of a given question. This probably implies a complex unity of science in a realist perspective (to be discussed as done by Putnam); for which the natural and mathematical sciences provide a promising model. At the same time, I am a proponent of theoretical and philosophical pluralism generally, due to my experience with linguistics, its challenges, and its controversies.
