This is the personal homepage of Benedict Eastaugh, a PhD student working on logic and the philosophy of mathematics at the University of Bristol.
To get in touch, email me at . My Twitter handle is @extralogical if you’re into that sort of thing.
My current research centres on developing philosophical responses to the programme in foundations of mathematics known as reverse mathematics.
In my Master’s dissertation I defended strong reflection principles as new axioms of set theory which are intrinsically justified on the iterative conception of set, and derived limitations on ontological accounts of higher-typed collections.
