Nathan Bice received a BA in Philosophy and Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Recently, his research has tended to focus on the following questions: Are some arguments good arguments solely in virtue of logical form? What is logical form? Do we have knowledge that is justificationally independent of experience? How is this possible? What does contemporary physics reveal about what the world is like? How ought we to change our beliefs in light of new information? What principles govern rational decision-making? Here is an incomplete, unordered list of academic topics that he currently enjoys thinking about: Mathematical Logic/Foundations of Mathematics (especially Recursion/Computability Theory, Model Theory, and a bit of Set Theory), Abstract Algebra, Topology, a bit of Computational Complexity Theory, Foundations of Physics (especially Quantum Mechanics, Relativity Theory, and Statistical Mechanics), Philosophy of Logic, The A Priori, Skepticism, Vagueness, Ontology, Reference, Foundations of Decision Theory, Agency, Semantics for Conditionals, and Normative Constraints on Belief Change.
