Benedict Eastaugh

I am a logician and philosopher of mathematics, based at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy. I was previously attached to a project on set-theoretic pluralism at the University of Aberdeen and the University of Bristol, working with Toby Meadows and Philip Welch.

My research is in logic and the philosophy of mathematics. My current project uses tools and results from reverse mathematics, a subfield of mathematical logic, to determine the strength of the axioms that are necessary for arguments in different areas of philosophy, such as epistemology, philosophy of language, and metaphysics. I'm also working on some results relating axiomatic theories of truth to hyperarithmetical analysis, and the role of reverse mathematics in foundations of mathematics.
