Radu Dudau (HPS Visiting Scholar)
Al. I. Cuza University, Romania
Fall Term 2004
Social Ontology: The Constructivist Approach

Radu Dudau (PhD, Konstanz, 2002) is lecturer in philosophy at Al. I Cuza University of Iasi (Romania). He works on philosophy of science and philosophy of language. While visiting the Center from September 2004 to February 2005 as a Fulbright scholar, his research topic was the ontology of social entities - that is, of things and facts depending for their existence on human collective intentionality. Those results are central to a broader research theme he is currently engaged in: naturalizing culture. He hopes to provide fairly soon the whole picture in a book currently in progress.

Radu was very impressed with Pittsburgh's musical scene. He enjoyed excellent jazz and rock. On Pittsburgh's South Side he discovered math rock – ask for Don Caballero if you're intrigued – probably a contamination of the local arts with the Center's rigor.
