In the Philosophy Department we’re pleased to be hosting some short visits from Gillian Russell, and Jon Cohen. It’s neat to be in a place where smart people come to visit, think and talk to you.

Last week we had a couple of logic seminars from neat west-coast of the USA types: Mike Titelbaum from Berkeley and Stanley Peters from Stanford. At drinks after the logic seminar I met Mark Steedman from Edinburgh, and it was nice to have a symmetric reaction “oh, you’re X, I’m Y” for X and Y in {‘MS’,‘GR’}. He was able to fill me in on the very interesting work done on substructrual logics, categorial grammar, and statistical parsing.


I’m Greg Restall, and this is my personal website. I am the Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of Philosophy at the University of St Andrews, and the Director of the Arché Philosophical Research Centre for Logic, Language, Metaphysics and Epistemology I like thinking about – and helping other people think about – logic and philosophy and the many different ways they can inform each other.
