Sander Verhaegh is Assistant Professor at the Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS) at Tilburg University in the Netherlands. His research focuses on the history of analytic philosophy, the history of psychology, and the philosophy of science. In his book Working from Within: The Nature and the Development of Quine's Naturalism (OUP, 2018), he reconstructs the structure and the evolution of W. V. Quine's most fundamental philosophical commitment. While in Pittsburgh, he will study the academic archives of Rudolf Carnap, Carl Hempel, and Hans Reichenbach for a book about the American reception of logical positivism.
