Here’s a short virtual gallery showcasing my instruments!

I am founder and admin of Le Quatrième Mur (The Fourth Wall), a Facebook and Instagram page sharing notes about films, books, and music, since 2013.

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.
