Time for a little grease and oil change

2022 has been another big year, not that you’d know it from looking around the news section of this website. Settling in to St Andrews has taken up a lot of my energy (in a good way), and I’ve been having too much fun writing things and giving talks to spend time updating this website.

With the break between Christmas and New Year, I finally had time to clean up a bit of the mess around here, and update things.

The template files I was using were incompatible with recent versions of Hugo, so I needed to take things apart and put things back together, because the build process was beginning to break. If you rely on any software, it makes sense to check in every so often, to make sure that you’re staying relatively up-to-date. If you’re stuck on an old version, you’re running on borrowed time unless you control the entire stack. In the case of software running on the network, you don’t. Keeping your own content on the web requires maintenance and a little bit of care and feeding every so often.

Given that I was digging around and fixing things, I took the opportunity to clean up and refresh the publications page, to highlight the books, since one long list of publications isn’t that accessible. Please let me know if anything looks weird or broke in the process.

With the débâcle of Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, I’ve weaned myself off that platform, so it made sense to remove the mentions of that account as a place to contact me. If you really want to see me elsewhere online, it’s best to try @consequently@scholar.social.


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.
