Moritz Cordes

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

I have been working in academic philosophy since 2008 (studying since 2003). Since then I have worked in several institutions, concluded research projects, substituted as a locum for the Chair of Theoretic Philosophy in Greifswald, and given many classes. My research concentrates on the logic and philosophy of questions, the concept of pseudoproblems, definition theory, and pragmatized ND calculi.

About Me

I am a husband and father of two children. The three of them occupy the three top spots on a pertinent linear ordering of the set of all people. Apart from that, I like running, hiking, single malts, the landscapes of Australia, the Polish language, submissions to the international feature film category at the Academy Awards (watched: 138/2686), and occasional board games. But, hobby-wise, my biggest passion is listening to unusual music. I am a collector of vinyl, CDs (esp. the forgotten format of miniCDs), and cassettes.
