Spring Term 2020
Christian J. Feldbacher-Escamilla is a research fellow and lecturer at the Duesseldorf Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science (DCLPS) at the University of Duesseldorf, Germany. His area of expertise is within epistemology and the metaphysics and philosophy of science, where he is particularly interested in problems of social epistemology and inductive as well as abductive inference. He is editor-in-chief of KRITERION — Journal of Philosophy, managing director of the German Society for Philosophy of Science (GWP) and permanent member of the organisation committee of the annual SOPhiA conference series, which is currently the largest philosophy graduate conference in Europe. While at the Center, he will pursue research on abductive epistemic engineering which relates abductive concept formation to epistemic engineering in the sense of explication.
