My name is Emerson Doyle. I have an ongoing per-course appointment as Assistant Professor at Huron University College, where I teach The History of Scientific Thought. I also sometimes
teach a variety of courses at Western University.
My dissertation develops a novel interpretation of Carnap’s philosophical program that places stress upon his methodological arguments for empiricism and conventionalism. I argue that a reinvigorated notion of Carnap’s method of explication has much to offer as a philosophical tool for understanding the epistemic structure of our theories.
