RESEARCH INTERESTS

Philosophy of Language Contemporary American Philosophy (Putnam, Davidson, Rorty and Quine) Relativism and Rationality Pragmatism Philosophy of Mind Cognitive Science My research and publications primarily focus on two areas: a) The choice between objectivity, relativism and pluralism as a solution to the intractable diversity of beliefs and values - And b) Contemporary American Philosophy, a dominant force in philosophical research since 1950s, - particularly as it relates to Philosophy of Language. The two areas intersect through the work of key contemporary American philosophers ' Quine, Putnam, Davidson and Rorty ' on the topic of relativism. I am also interested in topics from Cognitive Science, self-deception and neo-Whorfian linguistic relativism in particular, and have published and supervised graduate theses in these areas. Currently I am involved in a multi-disciplinary research project on peer expert disagreement, When Experts Disagree , funded by the Irish Research Council
