|Jeffrey S. Dunn||Courses
I am an assistant professor in the philosophy department at DePauw University. Before that I was a graduate student at UMass, Amherst, and an undergraduate at Washington State University. I also studied briefly as an undergraduate at Reading University.
My research interests are in epistemology, philosophy of science, and logic. I am specifically interested in issues in formal epistemology. I have done research on evidence, in particular, what it is to have evidence according to various formal models. More recently, I have focused on epistemic utility theory and epistemic consequentialism more generally.
In 2014 I was awarded a grant from the British Academy for a project on epistemic consequentialism, together with my co-investigator, Kristoffer Ahlstrom-Vij (Kent). We are finishing up the project, having organized a workshop at LSE's Centre for the Philosophy of Natural and Social Science (CNPSS) in 2014 and an international conference at the University of Kent in 2015. Kristoffer and I are also editing a volume, Epistemic Consequentialism, which is under contract with OUP.
