My research centers on the philosophy of science, especially on scientific experiment, theory building, semantics, and related issues in epistemology. Recent work focuses on the use of signs and axioms in scientific inference, on the history of 19th century science and philosophy, and on Kant's philosophy as a response to empiricism and rationalism.
