NEH Fellowship for AY 2009-2010, for a project titled 'Rational Belief Revision'

June 2010
I spent my NEH Fellowship for 2009-2010 finishing my book Changes of Mind: An Essay on Rational Belief-Revision.

I am now working on a big book on Logic (a much-revised and expanded version of my book Natural Logic), and a monograph on natural logicism.

Recent articles that might be of interest to Center members are:

'Inferential Semantics', in Jonathan Lear and Alex Oliver, eds., Festschrift for Timothy Smiley, Routledge, 2010, pp. 223--257

'Williamson's Woes', Synthese Special Issue Knowability and Beyond, ed. J. Salerno, vol. 173, no. 1, 2010, pp. 9--23

Forthcoming articles that might be of interest to Center members are:

'The Logical Structure of Scientific Explanation and Prediction: Planetary Orbits in a Sun's Gravitational Field', Studia Logica

'Sequent harmony', Analysis

'Deflationism and the Gödel-Phenomena: Reply to Cieslinski', Mind

‘Cut for Core Logic’, Review of Symbolic Logic

May 2012
The main item for me to report this year is the publication this June of my book Changes of Mind: An Essay on Rational Belief Revision, xviii + 345 pp., by Oxford University Press.

I am also currently serving as an Academic Advisor to the John Templeton Foundation:

Finally, the paper I gave at the 2008 Fellowship Reunion Conference held in Athens, Ohio has just been published by the Review of Symbolic Logic. The title is 'Cut for Core Logic'. The online version is at
http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/S1755020311000360  . I don't think the hard copy version is out yet.
