Moritz Cordes

Hello, I am a philosopher of language, logic, science, and mind.

After one semester of working as a locum for the Chair of Theoretic Philosophy in Greifswald, I am now continuing a project on the philosophy, logic, and epistemology of questions. In the past I have worked on the concept of pseudoproblems. Definition theory, explication, and pragmatized ND calculi have kept (and still keep) me occupied.

About Me

To the left you see a person which is neither identical with me nor an earlier time-slice of me. I do not know who this person is, unless you count as knowing any answer to ‚Who is the person pictured to the left?‘, including answers that are a relativization of the existential presupposition of the question to some rather comprehensive domain of things. In this case, I do know and the following is the extent of my knowledge: The person pictured to the left is a stock photo model.

Or in other words: [UNDER CONSTRUCTION]
