Research Interests

Stephan Hartmann's research interests are in philosophy of science (scientific reasoning, confirmation theory, reduction and emergence), philosophy of physics (probabilities in physics), formal epistemology (Bayesian epistemology and philosophy of science), and social epistemology (models of deliberation, norm emergence, and pluralistic ignorance). He is very much in favour of Mathematical or Formal Philosophy, i.e., the application of logical and mathematical methods in philosophy. For more information, visit his webpage
