Joke Meheus
Ghent University, Belgium  
Spring 2003
Ampliative adaptive logics and their implications
for the philosophy of science

Joke Meheus is a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Fund for Scientific Research – Flanders (Belgium). She obtained her Ph.D. in 1997 at the Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science of Ghent University where she is still pursuing her research.

Having dreamed of becoming a professional musician in a former life, Joke still loves being on stage, whether to give talks or to teach. Her work centers on the design of non-standard logics and on their applications in the philosophy of science. She is fascinated by the perspectives some recently developed logics open for the formal study of reasoning and by the problems they generate for the foundations of logic. Having a strong need to be creative, she considers herself lucky to be working in one of those rare periods of ‘revolutionary science.’

During her stay in Pittsburgh, Joke was finishing a book on the methodological study of scientific discovery. She will remember the Center as one of the most friendly and stimulating places she ever visited and secretly hopes that, one day, she will be able to return for a second term.
