Emerson Doyle's Webpage



My name is Emerson Doyle.  I have just recently defended my Ph.D. in Philosophy at Western University under the supervision of John L. Bell.

My dissertation develops a novel interpretation of Carnap’s philosophical program that places stress upon his methodological arguments for empiricism and conventionalism.   I think that lessons derived from a correct reading of Carnap’s program are applicable to the philosophy of mathematics and science as practised today, and in some future work I plan to explore such applications.  More generally, my research focuses upon the development of modern logic and its influence on, and relationship to, mathematics and the exact sciences.

For the last three years I have had the good fortune to teach The History of Scientific Thought at Huron University College, as well as a variety of other courses (including Basic Logic) at Western University.
